I guess that you're already working on Tears in Heaven, aren't you ? tongue.gif

I suggest some Radiohead songs like Street spirit, maybe Unintended from Muse if you like this kind of band tongue.gif

Cheers !

You can play Soldier of Fortune and When a blind man cries from Purple, they are both sad and suitable for acoustic play-along with voice only.

So far, I like almost all suggestions smile.gif

For some reason, I don't like Beatles playing that much tongue.gif

I can't think of anything more sad than "Hurt" as played by Johnny Cash. tongue.gif

But try also: Wicked game (Chris Isaak), black (pearl jam), mama said (metallica), if tomorrow never comes (garth brooks), Fake plastic trees (radiohead).

Well, all of that should be sadness enough tongue.gif

Great suggestions Gus... especially Johnny. I was going to recommend that one as well smile.gif

A few other's I'd suggest are

Coldplay - The Scientist, Trouble, Yellow, Fix You
Ben Harper - Another Lonely Day
Blue Rodeo - After the Rain
Jeff Beck - Hallelujah
Incubus - Mexico
The Rolling Stones - Wild Horses
Tom Petty - Walls
