    A Simple and Beautiful Song

    http://ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/u/u2/one_acoustic_crd.htm I love playing and singing this acoustic version of One by U2. Like the poster on UG says:    "what can you say about this song other than - wow!"

    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...

    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...
