What a title huh? Well, today I would like to share a list with beautiful acoustic guitar songs from contemporary singer songwriters. We all know the songs of the great singer songwriters like Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, so I thought it would be nice for a change to put together a list with the next generation of singer songwriters.
Don’t get hung up on the order of this list, nor the incompleteness. I know that the amount of singer songwriters that can be added to this list is infinite, so I hope you put your recommendations in the comments below. There is one rule though, they need to be guitar players :)
The list is here to inspire and give you some wonderful songs to explore, to listen to, study and practice.
Some of the artists in this list you might already be familiar with, others may be new to you. A good reason to check out these great songs, guitars and voices. Get yourself a cup of coffee, pick out your favourites, and start playing!
Note: Each song title contains a YouTube link. The “Chords” link will take you to the chords and lyrics or tabs and the “More Chords” link will show you the official transcribed chords if you want to learn more songs of the artist concerned.
Note: I want you to know I earn a small commission if you make a purchase through an amazon link to support the Guitarhabits website.
Do you know a great guitar song from a contemporary singer songwriter. Please share in the comments. I’d really appreciate it.
Don’t forget to practice ;)
Have a great weekend!
