    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...

    Tuning To Open C Permanently...Whats Involved?

    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 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...

    I was 16 years old when I got my first guitar.  I tried and tried to play & eventually learned to pick a few tunes.  The first song I ever learned was NEEDLE AND THE DAMAGE DONE by Neil Young... My very tallented and patient friend taught me.  I was such a...

    I've finally commited myself to acoustic guitar.

    I've had electric guitars, basses, and an acoustic-electric, but they just can't compare to the purity and clarity of an acoustic. I've decided to sell my old laptop, my acoustic-electric, and a gun to pay for a good acoustic- maybe a Martin or a Taylor. The music I listen to...

    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 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...

    My uncle taught me my first chords when I was a boy. My other uncle also had a guitar, and introduced me to Arlo Guthries' Alisons Restaurant Massacree, which I memorized faithfully, and sang acapella in its entirety to any other twelve year old who would listen:) It's great to...
