I (barely) play acoustic guitar and make a note when I see a song that would be fun/interesting to play. Here are a few picks. I have no idea about your tastes, but these fit mine (today, ask tomorrow and I would have a different list).

Less Of Me – Glen Campbell with Jackie DeShannon
It’s like a secular gospel song

In Spite of Ourselves – John Prine with Iris Dement

Dreaming – Amy Speace (Blondie cover
This translates so beautifully into a country song

I Want You Back – Sara Niemietz & W.G. Snuffy Walden

Eurythmics, Annie Lennox, Dave Stewart – Right By Your Side
