Do You know any really great solo stuff to play in front of girls/parents (my or hers
) on acoustic (for a while, let's focus on that one). I really want to play something really heart touching, that would go through skin color, beliefs, religion and so on. Something, that would touch another's person heart and make birds sing along when I'm around - something like this
I would really appriciate any songs. Thanks in advance
You're wasting your time.
Here's a preview of my guide of playing guitar for girls:
1. Throw your electric guitar out
2. Buy an acoustic guitar
3. Forget how to play fast
4. Familiarize yourself with the DADGAD tuning
5. Learn to play suspended and augmented chords
Sadly, this seems to be very true, I sometimes bring my guitar to school because there's an afterschool music club so I play during the day when I have free time and the girls keep on telling me ' don't play tabs' ( as in not solo-ey stuff), now I'm not one to bitch about about other people's music tastes all the time, but I find it sad that the only thing these people have the capacity to stand are very slowly strummed chords.
Sometimes I even resort to slow arpeggiated acoustic bits and they STILL complain. Hell, I don't even try to play speedy all the time and LIKE slowing down, but people don't like it because it's 'tab', single note stuff.
And by people I mean girls. Especially one annoying ass girl in particular.
