Wedding Song Filter: I am searching for love songs that I can perform (on classical guitar) at a close friend's reception. It will be performed half in spanish, half in english. I'm a male in the mezzo-soprano to alto range, my guitar skills are novice-to-intermediate.

"And I Love Her" by the Beatles. The original version is great of course, but there's a super version on this. I've played guitar for a very long time, but I can say with confidence that any intermediate player could pick it up with a few listens and some good tablature. Good luck!

Here's someone showing the chords to "There is Love" if you want them.

My cousin's brother played the Beatles' "In My Life," and it was surprisingly beautiful.

my wedding included the beatles song 'i will.'

for what it's worth, if you're a guy, your voice is a tenor. mezzo-soprano and alto range are used to refer to female voices.

One of my all time favorites is Solamente Una Vez, english with chords, english and spanish with other love songs

Three guys at a party - the guy in the middle is doing the base chords (different from the first link) but you ought to be able to get it down with some practice.

I usually play it a little faster, like a dance. YMMV,

oh, and just substitute A7 for Asus7, unless you're feeling adventurous.
