    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...

    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'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

    A bluesy guitar is fabulous, so is a reggae guitar. But I like a rock guitar, playing a riff I can identify with in my bones. The lyrics to the sound must resonate too.
