    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

    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...

    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...

    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...
