Ten Easy Acoustic Guitar Campfire Sing-Along Songs

Ten Easy Acoustic Guitar Campfire Sing-Along Songs

With spring-like weather in full swing (at least on the East Coast), it’s time to pull out the guitar and pull up around the campfire, backyard fire pit or friend-hang just about anywhere!

When it comes time to lead the sing-along, you need some easy acoustic guitar songs that are known and loved by all.

Here are a few that will get the crowd going and make you look like a genius...even if they only are three chords!

01. Brown Eyed Girl – Van Morrison

This has always been a favorite of mine. Probably because of my own brown eyes.

And why not. It’s got an easy, breezy sensibility and a walk-in-the-sunshine vibe.

“Brown Eyed Girl” was first released in May 1967 on the album Blowin' Your Mind!

It was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2007.

Originally titled "Brown-Skinned Girl," Morrison changed it to "Brown Eyed Girl" when he recorded it.

Morrison remarked on the original title, "That was just a mistake. It was a kind of Jamaican song. Calypso. It just slipped my mind. I changed the title. After we'd recorded it, I looked at the tape box and didn't even notice that I'd changed the title. I looked at the box where I'd lain it down with my guitar and it said 'Brown Eyed Girl' on the tape box. It's just one of those things that happen."

Well, I say, it’s a good mistake. But I might be a little partial.
