20 Best Acoustic Songs from Rock Artists

                        Was Cleaning our storage room when i found this, my poor old guitar. This was my then-boyfriend-now-husband's first gift. Can't believe it's almost a decade old and was able to stand the test of time.. (including floods and termites). I missed playing this since the last time i was able to play a guitar was during my college days, my highschool friends inspired me to learn the guitar, and of course, some good old rock music.
Rock music is not just about noise and distortion behind compelling and offbeat lyrics, sometimes, some of the "loudest" rock musicians and bands make music that are apt for the peace and quiet moments. There are also songs that inspires us to learn the guitar so we can play and sing those beautifully crafted songs. The one song that inspired me to learn the prominent instrument in music is Goo Goo Dolls' "Name" from the 1995 album A Boy Named Goo.
