    Hi SF members,
    I am bored with my guitar and I'm looking for songs to play. Can you share to me/us what are you favorite songs that gives you hope or relaxes you? or you can share just your favorite songs.
    you can tell why it is your favorite song.

    Mine is Canon by Johann Pachelbel,
    Because it is just relaxing.. And if the tempo is fast it makes my energy on full :)

    Cheers :)

    One of mine is a Julie Gold song called From A Distance. A lot of singers have covered it including Bette Midler and Cliff Richard although I think only Nanci Griffith really does it justice. Though it's not really a guitar-based song and so I am going to hold up this one, from a British janglepop outfit called Brighter....



    Christmas has some nice simple guitar work and I love this lyric...

    "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac and "A Quiet Mind" by Blue October are really calming for me.

    It's a little strange but when I heard this song during the paraolympics, I was blown away and still am.

    Go the distance - Michael Bolton.

    George Winston and Ludovico Einaudi, both pianists, have a lovely repertoire of beautiful music. Winston's Summer album is full of them and Einaudi composed quite a lot.
