    Acoustic Just Sounds Better

    At least it does for me. I tried electric and while I can play it i definitely prefer acoustic. Maybe because I like country music most of all, and it's the style I play? All I know is that if I had the choice of Taylor Swift's acoustic guitar or...anybody in rock's electric...

    Hi guys & gals, I have a beautiful acoustic 12 string, wanted to drop it to Open C (CGCGCE) permanently, as well as take off the higher "G" string (John Butler style) Other than tightening the truss rod a bit, should I use a different (thicker) gauge set of strings? Thanks for...

    Acoustic

    Acoustic guitar soothes me like no other instrument can. There is something I hear i can not explain... it is like it's own language. I can listen to it for so long. I would love to meet someone who would sing and play for me for hours. I think that would be just beautiful

    Acoustic Covers

    I love acoustic covers of songs that are in the chart and how it can often transform them to strongly, convey the beauty of the lyrics that are often lost otherwise. I love the intimacy of the acoustic guitar- how it lacks formality and it gives prevelance to the artist's...

    Hands-down Best Friend

    Outside of the members of my immediate family, the most enduring personal relationship I have had is with the acoustic guitar. The music is not in me. It's in the instrument, and somehow, my hands keep finding it. If physicists are right and the fundamental constructs of...

    I enjoy playing guitar. Not only because I love music, but it also has a meditative aspect to it. When I play, my mind is clear and all the worries are slowly fading away.

    I have both and electric and an acoustic. Sadly I can play neither. I keep trying but lack basic rhythm. I love the sound of music, but cannot make it.
