    I've always loved the Hawaiian Wedding Song but I haven't heard it in years. Of the songs that I have discovered recently, there's a really beautiful song entitled "And I Love You So" by Don McLean. It was transcribed in the last issue of Fingerstyle Guitar magazine.

      there are a few...and these are in my own humble opinion...

      Is There Anybody Out There? - Pink Floyd
      Landslide (live) - Fleetwood Mac
      Dust in the Wind - Kansas
      Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton

      those 4 should keep you busy for quite a while...

              Most beautiful acoustic number I think is Cello Song by Nick Drake. If you don't have access to a Cello player, I'd suggest Marietta by Francesco Tarrega.

                If the world should stop revolving
                Spinning slowly down to die.
                I'd spend the end with you
                And when the world was through...
                Then one by one, the stars would all go out.
                Then you and I, would simply fly away.

                    My list is long, here are some.

                    Autumn Leaves

                    Scarborough Fair

                    Morning Has Risen

                    These are tunes that are best when sung and played. The words to these three tunes are emotional, especially Autumn Leaves.

                      One of favorite fingerstyle songs is Paul SImon's "Kathy's Song." For good ol' steel string strumming, Neil Young is always a good bet. "Thrasher" (he does it on 12 string) is great, as is anything from Harvest or Harvest Moon.

                        "Operator" by Jim Croce

                        "Duncan", "America", "Kathy's Song" _ Paul Simon ( with Garfunkel )

                            There are many, but "I'm so lonesome I could cry" has to be one of the most beautiful.
                            Don't believe the hype

                              I would say Pat Metheny's "Travels" and "Farmers Trust" are very nice. He has done these in both acoustic and electric versions, and both ways are very moving.
