sounds like your playing is more advanced than my own, meaning you could probably be able to play Eric Clapton's " tear in heaven" properly.
I have heard only one person playing this really good apart from Clapton himself. And sitting in a room with someone playing this song note for note is just a wonderful exprerience to the ear hole.
so I nominate "Tears in Heaven"
but if that is too hard then the Who's " behind blue eyes."
If you can get a copy of Pete Townshend playing it solo it is marvelous, also easy to play as I can play it.
The problem is that it has two guitars I could play it no problem im just not sure about playing another two guitar song.
Behind Blue eyes would probley get boring for the listener for a while with no singing.
Thanks anyways tough,im going to look closer at tears in heaven to see if theres a way to play it using both parts at times were they seem influencual to the song
I play Tears in Heaven by myself, I just add in the other guitar's fills when Clapton is playing chords, and the solo when Clapton is playing chords. If you are decent at finger picking, I'd recommend Eric Johnson's Song for George-very blusey, fun to play, easy to listen to, and it's only like a minute and a half long. That one is in a strange tuning, I'm not sure what it's called, but it's DADGAd (low to high). One other one I like to play is Clapton's Layla acoustic, though I don't sing so I go from the intro into the solo, and it makes a good minute-and-a-half to two-minute song all by itself without the chorus. The solo is cool and fairly easy to play (by the way, Clapton and Johnson are in my humble opinion the best guitar players the world has ever seen). Good luck!
