Believe it or not, there are songs that have been performed by artists with no guitar accompaniment. It is kind of hard to imagine because the guitar is known for its versatility and an all-around musical instrument. Here are some songs where you will not hear a single pluck or strum from a guitar.
You may have been listening to Eminem’s Stan but this might be your first time knowing that this song does not have a guitar playing in it.
One famous song is by Radiohead, Everything in its Right Place that does not have this string instrument playing. And of course, if you are a heavy metal fan, you would recognize (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth by Metallica does not have a (classical) guitar playing in the song.
Many good songs have been sung without the accompaniment of the guitar. Some examples of this include "Come Away with Me”, “Don’t Know Why” by Nora Jones, “Thank you” by Dido, and the final track on Alanis Morrisette’s Jagged Little Pill.
It is called “Your House.” “Changes” by Black Sabbath is, “Mad World” by Gary Jules, and most Ben Fold Five songs did not include guitar. The song, “Brick” is a notable example, "Nobody Home" by Pink Floyd, and "Stan" by Eminem is a perfect song without the guitar. It also features Dido. "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails is another song without the guitar.
