hey what can you do? you two have magic together.
It’s all her brother!!!
I play my acoustics probably 80% of the time and electric 20%. This has increased over the past few years and seems to be continuing.
Sometimes I do, but I've always seen myself as an electric player. I lay down acoustic tracks for recordings, and love a good acoustic jam with my friends, but it's a different way of playing guitar.
I play my acoustics most of the time. I love my electrics, but the acoustics are just easier to bring out more often and play, while still hanging out with my wife and little kids...
I started by playing acoustic for several years before ever getting an electric, so I'll love the acoustic tone.
Yes. I play my only acoustic when I have to. If I can't find another acoustic player for a given weekend, and some songs absolutely need an acoustic, I'll do it. I played acoustic for enough years before I got serious about the guitar thing and got into electrics, now I'm spoiled.
I play acoustic more than electric these days! Mind you, living in an apartment with a 100watt amp might be the reason why.
It's much more satisfying to learn a new riff on an acoustic than it it is on a strat.
Acoustic ... ?
It's probably 50/50 with me at this point. I love both.
Never had one, never will.
Just not for me.
Do Electric Players Neglect their Acoustics?
Or, Do Electric Sheep Dream of Androids?
I have a Classical Yamaha, only ever touch it to polish and lemon-oil the fretboard- about twice a year. Tried playing it recently after maybe 2 years... and I thought I suck on electric...
I neglect mine.
I look at my acoustic guitar like my black dress shoes: I am glad I have them, but by definition, if I’m wearing them it is only because my more comfortable shoes will not work for the situation.
I've owned an Alvarez since 1977. It sounds great but I have several electrics and amps. The poor old Alvarez sits on a stand in the bedroom collecting dust.
I’m guilty of it. Got 2 great acoustics but we’ve got a smaller house and don’t get as much use as the electrics. Easier to noodle on the couch unplugged than fill the room and drown out the TV (piss everyone off) with an acoustic. It’s a holiday weekend coming up. Maybe I need to change that.
It depends upon at which level your electric skills reside. If you are playing 16th notes at 180bpm on the electric you might wanna stay with the electric. At that level, your hands themselves have become instruments. I wouldn't throw sand in the gears.
I have a Lowden O32C, so it never gets neglected. Its like no matter how many women are at a dance, there's always one that stands out.
I don’t, but I also don’t consider one over the other. To me they are the same thing, a guitar.
Is the pain in the shoulder that goes over the upper bout of the guitar? If so it's time to get something smaller/shallower. I figured that one out in 1972 when I owned a Guild F-50R Jumbo. I'm 5'4", but I didn't consider it while looking at the picture of Eric Clapton in the Guild catalog advertisement!
It it don't fit, don't commit.
Have a great Thanksgiving!
