Going Unplugged: The 25 Best Acoustic Classic Rock Songs
Tune in, unplug and chill out.
Just in case you didn't know The National Day of Unplugging 2019 happens from sundown to sundown, March 1st and 2nd. According to the website nationaldayofunplugging.com this is a 24 hour global respite from technology, highlighting the value of disconnecting from digital devices to connect with ourselves, our loved ones and our communities in real time.
I know, completely unplugging is something that's a lot easier said than done. Going 24 seconds without using a smartphone, using a computer or nuking up a meal in the microwave is hard enough but twenty four hours? That feels like a monumental task but well worth it if done I'm sure.
What's not nearly as difficult (and pretty damn enjoyable I must say) is to listen to rock and roll artists unplug. Below is my list of the 25 best acoustic classic rock songs with a link to each for you to unplug and unwind to:
