X2 on When the Levee Breaks.
That would make a great acoustic blues.
.........I’ll never leave you Bob.
On a serious note:-
Rock ‘n Roll
When the Levee Breaks
Whole Lotta Love.
Since I’ve Been Loving You
In My Time of Dying (great for Slide)
What Is & Should Never Be
Bring it On Home
If you want to go nuts.........Kashmir.
For Acoustic try Gallows Pole or maybe Battle of Evermore.
Yeah, OP is a solo acoustic performer, so riff-based stuff is gonna be a hard sell. BoE has some difficult melodies to sing, too.
Ouch I forgot about that Thump.
...................I'm swingin' on the gallows pole.
Yeah, but are you in through the out door?
Fool in the Rain.
Dazed and Confused
So far Out the door he's On The Tiles....
Whichever songs you go with, there are loads of guys doing covers on youtube. Check out the better acoustic ones and see what they do when there is something difficult to replicate on acoustic (like the noisey abstract stuff before the Whole Lotta Love solo and many of the electric solos). In some cases, find a way to string it all together with existing connections in the song and eliminate the solo all together.
The Rain Song,
Alternate tuning, SIMPLE, great dynamics and women love it....
Ramble on, easy....
Over the Hills is intricate but awesome to do.
Friends ....Alternate Tuning but very cool, and very, very Easy.
Black Country Woman....easy ...better with two guitars or a an accompanying mandolin
Hey Hey What Can I do? Easy ...timing has a tad goofiness ...
Gallows Pole, has a strange turn around I was never quite successful at mastering, but once you get past it I'm sure its easy
Rain Song simple? To do it really well, not at all for me. That timing and keeping tempo kicks my ass.
Over The Hills was far easier.
The Gallows Pole turnaround is tricky. I keep tinkering with it.
BTW, I can't sing. Never could. I also lack the coordination to be able to do so with a few exceptions. I can sort of pull off Space Oddity for one. Only for my amusement. No one else would find it amusing.
I was asked to sing back up for every band I've been in. I would join in (where possible) and was never asked again.
