Acoustic Guitar Song Set List

I’m a terrible guitar player but I do enjoy playing when I can overcome the frustrations of my incompetence.  With that in mind, I’ve changed how I try to learn to play and am currently looking for an instructor.

Below is the list of songs that I am going to learn to play and order in which I am going to learn them.  My “Set List”, if I can go so far.  This list is living meaning it will grow, shrink, change order and so on.  Each entry will be a link to another post where  I explore the song and evolve from an easy version to wherever it is that I end up.  Additionally, I like to learn more about the background of the song, if any, so that it becomes more interesting and I can be even more irritating around a campfire with “fun facts”.

So… my list.  Let me know what you think of it.  To see why and how I’m learning it click on it and go to the individual post.
