Warm as Tears is one of my favorite guitar songs. Can you play it well? Where did you get the tab? I was working on it awhile back, need to try again.

I tune my guitar to DADGAD and play Phil Keaggy's County Down. It never grows old, and if you miss a note or two the tuning automatically helps out and makes it all sound ok.

Very catchy opening riff (that repeats throughout the song). One of the many YouTube tutorials here. Urban's version here.
What a wonderful song! I was just picking that up myself! It's great to play and sign too!

I couldn't agree more! What a great song! one of the first that I learned when I first got my Taylor NS74ce cause Mraz is my all time favorite!

As for steel string songs, I'd say:
Little Martha by The Allman Brothers

In no particular order...

"A Day in the Life" by The Beatles. (I don't play it "correctly," I just came up with my own arrangement by ear, in D.)
"Two Hearts" by the Jayhawks
"So. Central Rain" by R.E.M.

Sexual Healing.

Great song with a really infectious groove (pardon the pun).

Just learned "Greenback Dollar" by Hoyt Axton, popularized by Kingston Trio, yet heard from and learned from Fretkillr.
"Warm and Windy" for the fingers or "California Dreamin'"

Outside Woman Blues (Acoustic) - Eric Clapton
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9oare...eature=related

Stellar (Acoustic) - Incubus
Love Hurts (Acoustic) - Incubus
I Miss You (Acoustic) - Incubus
Pardon Me (Acoustic) - Incubus
Drive (Acoustic) - Incubus
I noticed that I'm one of the younger guys on here (21) and seeing as I learn about a lot of cool songs from you guys from the older generations (no offense) I figured I'd let you guys know about some good sounding songs from my generation you may not have heard of. Check those five songs out, I'm confident you'll enjoy them. Just make sure you listen to the acoustic version and not the originals.

Forgot to add one...
D.O.A. - Jay-Z and John Mayer

I know it's on the electric but I ran through it on acoustic and it sounded pretty good. Plus, it's completely different than any song I've seen on this thread so far.
