    ok so i got my guitar for Xmas. I have been browsing around on ultimate-guitar.com at the tabs. I have printed off a few to learn , but cant seem to think of anymore.

    Just wanted a few suggestions from you guys on some good acoustic songs i could get to learn.

    who let the dogs out
    the macarana
    anything by the spice girls




    :D










    just kidding.

    i learned by playing green day, offspring, and nirvana shit. simple two or 3 chord stuff back in the early 90's. lol

    after that, i moved on to other stuff but i always liked playing along with days of the new and tantric. they are good players and play accustic stuff that rocks, so its cool ::)

    dashboard confessional, Jack Johnson, some Foo Fighter songs, some starting line.

    Go to amazon.com and find the songs that are on a CD called Punk Goes Accoustic, then download all those songs off Ares.

    jack johnson definately isn't anything for beginners. i've been playing for nearly 10 years now and find some of his stuff challenging... namely Taylor

    Green Day stuff is fun, and easy to learn. I also agree with whoever said Nirvana.

    lol. I don't play any instraments but I love accoustic music. This year I want to learn how to play. Adam, If you want to listen to just the guitar part of his songs, download the cd "Guitar tribute to Jack Johnson by Dark One Lite" It has 10 or so songs exactly like jack johnsons just with no words.

    I started to learn to play the guitar but never had much time for it, I have always been told to learn how to play a series of cords then switching back and forth between cords to learn how to move along the fret board before trying to play any song.

    learning to play guitar by learning songs was always frowned upon by my instructor and my brother as wel who was helping me out.

    If anything find a song you like and right down all the cords in the song, learn how to play them and play them well, and then after you have mastered those cords, try playing the song.
