    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...

    Thank You God, Or Should It Be The Devil...?

    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...

    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...

    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

    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...
