    She's asked if I'd like to play guitar on a few songs for her to sing.

    I've suggested a few songs to her, she's going to suggest some as well, but a question for the collective:
    What would you suggest for enjoyable songs (hopefully well known) that could be done as an acoustic set with little rehearsing.
    My brother's band (used to) do an acoustic set once a month in a small pub that can't handle the racket of a fully amped up rig. Then there's the two lads we used to go to school with who (used to) play semi-acoustic in that its just lead and rhythm guitars and them singing. Will have a think about what tunez they have in their repertoires.

      Yes you can. Keep each image file < 1 MB in JPG format.
      Put them in:

      Then you'll see them at the bottom of the list of backgrounds.

        Oh! Thank you! Our Programme Manager is tasked with the joke of the day at the all-client coffee call in the morning. That'll give him something to cause a titter.

              Echoes (the Album) was one of the greatest hits ones.
              It was either Meddle or Ummagumma.

              Since I've only ever listened to Ummagumma twice, once for the LP and once for the CD, I'd go with Meddle as above.
