When Labor Day came and went earlier this month, it reminded us of the American labor movement and the contributions American workers have made to the strength, prosperity and well-being of the good ol' U.S. of A. However, since we're Guitar World people, we couldn't help but apply those sentiments to music and the American people who made and make it—bands!
Although all of these classic songs may not have been originally recorded on acoustic, they all are perfect for an acoustic jam. These aren’t ranked in any order, just ten great songs that are super easy to play. Even if you can’t master the iconic riffs that are part of most of these, they’re all great to add to your fun strumming repertoire.
Among this week's new releases is a live DVD by Texas guitar legend Steve Miller. The DVD, Steve Miller Band — Live at Austin City Limits, was released Tuesday via ACL Enterprises. Steve Miller Band's 2011 performance was the inaugural taping in ACL's new home, ACL Live at The Moody Theater in downtown Austin. “It was a great audience, and it was more fun than I even thought it would be,” Miller said.
