So I'm ready to take the campfire experience to the next level: playing guitar and singing songs. You know why? Because a guy with a guitar and a campfire is always the coolest guy in the world.
Here's the list I'm thinking about. Tell me, which ones am I forgetting? Which ones do you disagree with?
Top 10 Campfire Guitar Songs To Learn
Hey Jude - The Beatles; all those na-na-na's are infectious and no one can resist raising a glass and singing along
Knockin' on Heaven's Door - Bob Dylan; I'm not really crazy about this one, but people like it. Extra bonus is you can change lyrics on the fly to mock your friends and make them laugh.
Take It On The Run - REO Speedwagon, but Roger Clyne and The Peacemakers covered it at a Circus Mexicus show and absolutely clobbered it out of the park. That's the performance that put this song on my list.
Don't Stop Believing - Journey; Yeah, uh, good luck singing this one.
Pancho and Lefty - Townes Van Zandt; popularized by Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard. Even better, it's about Mexico, and friendship and the fine line we walk.
