Hey, i need help finding some songs to convert to acoustic.

me and my bass player do some acoustic sets every now and again and we need more songs.
so far we have:

soundgarden - black hole sun
shinedown - 45
lynyrd skynyrd - simple man
nickelback - rockstar
poison - every rose has its thorn
seether - broken (with a guest female singer when we do the version with amy lee)

were looking for songs with the same type of vocals as shinedown/nickelback/seether but we dont want to use too many songs from the same bands.

can anyone think of any?

Cheers
Chris

mmm been thinking. Might not be to your taste but what about the following;

1. You do Something to me - Paul Weller
2. Outside - Staind
3. Wish You Where Here - Pink Floyd
4. Behind Blue Eyes - Limp Bizkit version
5. Rebel Yell - Billy Idol

If I think of anymore I'll post them smile.gif

I was just at an acoustic act yesterday, just two acoustic guitars playing covers,
one that really got my attention was Pink Floyd - Comfortably Numb, that solo converted to acoustic is just breathtaking.

Creed - My sacrifice
Crossfade - Colors
Dry kill logic - Kingdom of the blind
Seether - Fade away

Soundgarden - Spoonman
Pearl Jam - Yellow Ledbetter, Alive, Black
Audioslave - We got the Whip
