Cool Acoustic Songs

 

So you’re combing the pages of google looking for “cool acoustic songs”?  Maybe guitar kitty can help.  In descending order from easiest to hardest, here are a few very cool acoustic songs that if you’re just hear to listen you can enjoy and if you’re hear to learn some guitar you can spend your time wisely with these acoustic classics. Tabs are included for those acoustic guitar players looking to learn some cool songs.

 

Good Riddance – Green Day

This is one of the most iconic acoustic guitar songs of the last 40 years and is a perfect song to be introduced to “fingerpicking” with. Billy Joe, the lead singer and guitarist of Green Day, actually messes up in the very beginning of this track…twice….and immediately drops a faint f-bomb if you listen closely. Hopefully the tab will help you out so you won’t be doing the same.

Hey There Delilah – Plain White Ts

If you a guy and you like a girl named Delilah learning this song and playing it for her is almost a guarantee she will marry you. Play it well, friend.

TAB

 

 

Sound of Silence – Paul Simon

If you learn “Hey There Delilah” you pretty much will have his fingerpicking pattern down. This song is dark, eerie and an American Classic that will win you points with middle aged people and older people if you find yourself at an open mic with an acoustic guitar. Disturbed (you know, that crazy band that sings “Down with the Sickness” …….oooooo WA AGH AGH AGH) recently did a remake of this and although I was very skeptical…..WOW it not disappoint.

Iris – Goo Goo Dolls

The second you hear the 12 string and the mandolin pulsing together you may be want to start crying and tell Nicolas Cage that it’s ok he can stay on earth with you. (If you haven’t seen city of Angels, don’t worry I have lost my effing mind, that’s a movie reference…this song is basically the theme to it)

TAB

 

 

I Will Follow You Into the Dark – Death Cab for Cutie

This is an absolutely heart wrenching song. “Fear not, person that I love, we are both going to die someday and if you are not escorted into heaven by angels, I will go with you into the dark abyss”. So it’s a little deeper than anything by Enrique Iglesias or Brittany Spears. It’s a love song for smart people and thankfully it’s not that hard to play.

TAB

 

 

Blackbird – The Beatles

The fingerpicking pattern in this song inspired thousands of other songwriters to copy it. It’s simple, intriguing and one of the coolest acoustic guitar songs in the history of popular music.

TAB

 

 

Fire and Rain – James Taylor

There are few people who are able to paint photographs in your mind with words as well as James Taylor. “Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground” is one of the gorgeous lines in this fingerpicking classic. This song may make you miss a decade you weren’t even alive yet to see.

TAB

 

 

Nick Drake – One of These Things First

We’re getting a little bit more tricky in difficulty but this song is an absolute beautiful one that I swore for years that was a release by some indie artist in the last five years….but NO, Nick Drake was writing hipster acoustic songs in the 70’s! He’s not even alive anymore…..NOOOOOO!!! Whahamuna?

TAB

 

Neon – John Mayer

Alright, get your fingers ready….this one is NOT an easy one. This song is basically an into to funk slap bass. This funky acoustic tune was from John Mayer’s first major release in the early 2000’s. He’s singing about a girl he wants to be with but she seems preoccupied with getting drunk, or at least getting a buzz…..the way neon signs above the bars she goes into buzz. Hence the name “Neon”. This video may blow your mind a little, it is NOT easy to play and sing this one at the same time.

TAB

 

 

Leyenda – Isaac Albeniz

Alright, you asked for it. I hope you’re ready for a full on acoustic masterpiece. This piece isn’t exactly pop, its a composition by a pianist that was very popularly turned into a classical guitar piece. This one is not for the faint of heart. Proceed with caution and enjoy!

Thanks for hanging with me and I hope these songs are fun to listen to and if you’re a guitar player, fun to learn! Did I leave one out?  Please type it below in the comments.
