9/11 Spotify Playlist: Acoustic

With electric instruments and amplifiers not allowed in dorm rooms, the acoustic guitar  is the popular instrument of choice for college students to bring to campus. A few weeks into the semester and there’s a good chance a freshman has played his or her guitar in a commons area to impress peers. It’s likely that some of these songs were played. If not, here are some acoustic tracks to create relaxing study environment.
