    Anybody got any good ideas of a song to play to a girlfriend? I play guitar well, so the technical side wouldn't really be a problem. I was thinking Bryan Adams - everything i do i do it for you - cheesy or what? But I'm thinking along those lines. What would be EVEN better is an acousticy piece without words, cos I have trouble singing and strumming at the same time!

    Coldplay's 'See You Soon' is simple to play and sing yet moving. Or do the old 'Stairway to Heaven' routine, that would work pretty well as guitar solo i guess. I think that song is probably the most used to sing/play to a lover.

    What a lovely thing to do for her. I wish my bf did things like that!

    Have *no* idea whether these songs are playable... but just some suggestions:

    Eric Clapton - You Look Wonderful Tonight (love that song!)
    Prince - The Most Beautiful Girl in the World

    ...or you could do a song a la Mr Heath Ledger in '10 Things I Hate About You' and sing 'I Love you Baby' - love it!

    ...Bryan Adams might be a bit cheesy, but remember it was number one for like half a decade or something - and inside, everyone just wants to sing along when it's on VH1 - they just don't and won't admit it!

    Good luck, I'm sure she'll love whatever you do. x x x

    So you wanted
    to take a break
    Slow it down some and
    have some space

    Well f**k you too

    (And don't forget to give
    me back my black T-Shirt)

    Wish I hadn't bought you
    dinner
    Right before you dumped me

    Give me my money back
    You b**ch
    I want my money back

    Yup, Kris Roe is a genius when it comes to writing love songs, San Dimas and IOU are great, another that I'd recommend is I Wont Spend Another Night Alone, awesome song!

    Ha! Thanks for the suggestions... don't know why I didn't think of Spinal Tap before! Doesn't "Big Bottom" go like "my baby fits me like a flesh tuxedo, I like to sink her with my pink torpedo...". As for "Lick my love pump", "its influenced by Mozart and Bach, so I guess you could called it a Mach piece....". Yes, I do read the Spinal Tap book every day of my life.

    Isn't "Lick My Love Pump" a piano piece, though?

    "While my guitar gently weeps" by George Harrison?

    She'd be very impressed by that piece because of complexity and quality in the licks. It's a soft and gentle solo so would be quite good.

    WORD! Even if it's crap, she'll appreciate the effort to be fair. Alternatively you could write a good one, get a record deal and become a millionaire rock star!!! I'll shut up.
