Top 10 acoustic guitar songs – ever!

I had the idea to do a post about the best acoustic guitar songs and thought it would be fun to try and put together a list of my favourites.

After much deliberation, here’s my list of the best acoustic guitar songs ever recorded. Some aren’t strictly acoustic, but they’re all heavily-reliant on an acoustic guitar.

I’d love to know what you guys think so leave your suggestions in the comments at the bottom and maybe we can start building a bigger list.

Oasis to reissue Definitely Maybe to celebrate 20 year anniversary

Deep down I think we all know today’s announcement wasn’t going to be news of a reunion, but for a brief period last night Oasis fans everywhere were holding their breath.

It’s all part of something called ‘Chasing The Sun’, which will see Oasis release remastered versions of all of their 90’s albums over the course of this year. (What’s The Story) Morning Glory will follow later in the year, and presumably Be Here Now will be out after that. Read more about Oasis to reissue Definitely Maybe to celebrate 20 year anniversary
