Hey guys,

I'm playing in a band with three other guys, we have the line up as follows:

Me: Acoustic guitar - Vocals
Arjan: Acoustic bass - vocals
Matthijs: Acoustic guitar - vocals
Desmond: Drums

Does anyone know some nice acoustic songs which would suit this set-up? It doesn't have to be 100% the same line-up, we can change things a bit.

So basicly I'm just asking for some good acoustic songs tongue.gif laugh.gif level doesn't really matter.

+ 1 on Eric Clapton songs from Unplugged album smile.gif

Also you can do songs from Oasis (Wonder wall ?) or James Blunt even John Mayer songs could sound awesome in acoustic line up.
Hope that helps

Try "Hotel California" by Eagles, it's a nice standard for multiple acoustic guitars.

You can listen to the Scorpions - Acoustica album - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acoustica_(Scorpions_album)
They have so many hit songs and they did them all on this album in unplugged version!! Also they did a great cover of Dust in the wind song on it!! smile.gif

Try out some Alice in chains and Nirvana's unplugged! Like "Over now" and "The man who sold the world".

Also, consider making acoustic versions of famous songs even if you never heard acoustic versions before wink.gif
If you search for a guy named "Emmerson Nogueira", he basically became very famous in Brazil by making very nice acoustic covers of famous international songs.

I second Sensible Jones with Neil Young. He has some great stuff that you can easily fit to your band set up. Also check out Crosby, Stills, and Nash (or even when Neil Young was with them) They do amazing harmonies.

If you are looking for more of a rock feel, check out Days of the New. Stuff like Touch peel and Stand or Shelf in the Room
