Many of these songs are lead guitar that I thought had an acoustic edge to them. Some of these songs have good but short parts that will give you great practice.

Guns and Roses - Don't Cry, It's got and easy steady rythm

Poison - Every Rose Has It's Thorn

Rod Stewart - Maggie May

Skid Row - I Remember You

Tesla - Love Song

Tesla - Heavens Trail "the beginning of the song has a real catchy rythm that would be good for practice even though the rest of the song is mostly bass guitar" This song rocks

Warrant - Uncle Tom's Cabin "also the beginning of the song"

Neil Young "3 songs" Old Man - My My Hey Hey - Cinnamon Girl

Gin Blossoms - Found Out About You - also the song - Till I Hear It From You

Goo Goo Dolls - Iris - and also the song - Name

Cheap Trick - Where Ever You Go "it also might be entitled The Flame"

Brian Adams - Heaven

Boston - Amanda

Great White - Wasted Rock Ranger "If you don't play it you'll laugh your ass off hearing it for the first time"

Michele Branch - Breath

Don't Laugh but anything from The Monkee's "a lot of nice acoustic guitar"

Outfield - I Don't Want To Loose Your Love

Red Hot Chili Peppers - The Zephyr Song "also" - Under The Bridge"

Rick Spingfield - I've Done Everything For You

Sheryl Crow "almost any song"

Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm

Damn Yankee's - Take Me Higher "guitar by Ted Nugent"

If your feeling ballsy then check out Ted Nugent - Great White Buffalo

The Cranberries - Ode to my family "also" Linger "also" Zombie

Deep Blue Something - Breakfast at Tiffany's

Harry Chapin - Cats In The Cradle

Jars Of Clay - Flood

Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

Natalie Imbruglia - Torn

Neil Diamond - Girl you'll be a woman soon "song from pulp fiction you hear when John Travolta first meets Uma Thurman at the mansion, it's got a spanish sound to it"

Nelson - Love And Affection

Pretenders - Back On The Chain Gang

Rembrandts - Just the Way It Is Baby

Replacements - I'll Be You "this could be fun to play, rock out girl"

White Lion- Wait "The beginning of this song has a very distinctive sound"

Lastly try to find online the live versions of Foo Fighters - Everlong. Its pretty good but there are other songs out there of just acoustic Foo Fighters which are excellent.
