Nature’s own soundtrack is a tough one to rival. Birdsong, flowing rivers, chattering leaves — these all signal our escape to a place far from our busy lives with jobs, responsibilities and worries. But when the sun sets, and a crackling campfire rouses its smoky appeal, there are few things better than an acoustic guitar and a couple of old-fashioned sing-alongs. In case your fingers are a bit rusty with the axe, or you just want to focus on perfecting a few s’mores, we’ve got you covered with smooth-like-butter harmonies and fingerpicking in spades. Here are 50 songs to pack along on that next venture to the wild. Sit back, relax, and press play.
