Two of my favorites to play are Name by the Goo Goo Dolls and the acoustic version slowed down just a bit of Everlong by the Foo Fighters. If I wanted to add to this a third it would be Roxanne by the Police. However it is the version from the Secret Policemans Ball. This version is all finger picked.

I don't have a very large repertoire so far, but the dumbed-down version of "Freight Train" that my instructor did an arrangement of is my favorite so far.

Cue,

No I don't. I don't read music or tab. I taught myself by ear without any music. Just on memory.

But it is in the key of E the way I play it. And chock full of blues.

"Late Morning Blues" by Woody Mann is great (based on Blind Blake's "Early Morning Blues"). Fun to play.

I don't play a lot of real songs, but I also enjoy "Buckdancer's Choice". The version Mike Seeger teaches - based on Sam McGee's version - has several parts and is a lot of fun. The beginning part is really nice to play.

"At a Georgia Camp Meeting" is also one of my other favorites. Such a great tune.
