Instrumental Guitar suggestions
« on: July 13, 2010, 03:07:06 pm »
Ok, for those who aren't aware, i'm an aspiring guitarist. I find that listening to acoustic guitar seems to help me out a good deal as its what i play... as of lately, i cant find any good acoustic guitar songs. Can anyone give me some suggestions to some songs? instrumental is prefered.
It seems like humans have forgotten that they are animals at heart... We furries awakened to that truth...

What could that mean?

Check out anything off of Buckethead's "Acoustic Shards" album. That's all instrumental, and acoustic. It might be a little tough though.

Also, all of Alice and Chains' "Jar of Flies" album. It's all acoustic, but I think there's only one instrumental (Whale and Wasp)

For acoustic guitar, I would point to Nick Drake, but I've kind of been obsessing of his music lately. It's not instrumental, but each piece could easily go without the singer. I'm unaware of your skill level, but here is one of my favorite songs by him.

andehb1981 has some good acoustic songs from Breaking  Benjamin. I think he sounds really good.
His youtube Channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/andehb1981)

I'm going to agree with Just Dan on Nick Drake.

Anything by Michael Hedges.  He's a true master of the harp guitar and the acoustic guitar.  R.I.P.

Paco De Lucia is one of the finest flamenco guitarists in the world.

The John Butler Trio broke up I think, but they released some really beautiful songs.

Ulli Boegershausen is a great German acoustic guitarist.

The links I posted were just examples, but you should check out all of their songs.

You can always consider some classical songs. :p

Andy McKee is a great acoustic/harp-guitar player, and lot of his stuff is on youtube.  "Drifting" and "Rylynn" are both incredible pieces.
