So I've been playing for ten years and already know quite a few, but I've gotten to the point where I want to play songs at bars for people, and song selection is critical. What are songs you would want to hear someone play and sing? (Keep in mind it would be just me, one acoustic guitar). And while I'm writing this, girls, when you know a guy plays guitar what are some songs you wish he knew how to play?

Ooohhh acoustic guitar.
Here are the ones I like to play:
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Cabron", "Breaking the Girl", "Under the Bridge"
Nirvana - "About a Girl"
Judas Priest - "Last Rose of Summer"
The Killers - "For Reasons Unknown" <--super simple lol
Avenged Sevenfold - "Dear God"
Death Angel - "A Room with a View", "
Black Sabbath - "Orchid"
Coldplay - "Til Kingdom Come" <--one of my favorite songs of all time, I think it's open C tuning
Led Zeppelin - "Friends", "D'yer Maker", "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You", "Tangerine"
Ooohh "Tangerine" is such a nice song lol. But it would probably be better with two people.
Anyway, yeah. I don't know what genres you were looking for, or what your skill level is. Some of these songs are kinda hard for me and I've been playing mostly electric guitar for about 6 years. But I suck with big chords cause of my short fingers so...0
