    I think music isn't a competition on who's the best...who's the fastest..who has the better chops etc. Yes, the srv's etc are great players but equally great songwriters/Acoustic players like Damien Rice (Ed Sheeran) for instance are still excellent at their chosen path. Each are individual and appeal to different people.

    I cant believe some people here have never heard of Ed Sheeran. Basically admitting that you live under a rock

    I danced with my wife to a street sax player in Rome playing Sheeran's Thinking Out Loud. There was a huge crowd watching this guy tear it up and I couldn't let the moment pass. Also have to admit that song is now my ringtone for when my wife calls. Damn skippy.

    Yeah, as if the placement of the snark tuner wasn't bad enough, there was the shorts, black socks, and dress shoes. :)

    I had a guitar player ask me about the snark tuners and I explained how they work and that they are the best invention since sliced bread...emphasizing that the best part was you could tune your acoustic in a noisy environment easily since it used vibrations through the headstock.

    Weeks later I see her using it and she is banging on the strings as hard as she can. I ask her why she is doing that. She said it was noisy and the tuner wasn't picking up the sound. I explained AGAIN how it works. A few weeks later I see her off to the side where it was quiet trying to tune...using the snark. I gave up at that point...as I stood their quietly turning up amongst a noisy ruckus using my snark :).

    Only reason I know about Ed Sheeran is I have a 14 year old daughter, otherwise I'd have no idea.

    It's cozy under this rock :whistling:.

    Exactly...

    thanks to car rides with the kids I'm all up to speed with James Bay and that James Arthur feller. But when I'M in control of the stereo they get a healthy dose of that good old rock music.

    LOL.

    She didn't get into iCarly, but watched every episode of Big Time Rush and Victorious :). Nowadays, it's all youtube and sometimes Netflix. I get on them about sitting there watching other people do stuff...go play the Xbox yourself, don't watch somebody else doing it!! :).

    Now my youngest son (9 years old) I have had a significant influence on without even knowing it. He inherited my daughter's old ipod touch when she got a phone. I loaded up some music on it for him. He likes Muse, so I put some heavier stuff on there for him...Rush, Riverside, Filter...I forget what else. So, at piano lesson, I hear him discussing "prog rock" with his teacher. I hear "Hyperactive" by Riverside playing. Another time I hear one of the newer mellower Filter songs...oh, it's "First You Break It". WTH!?!? So I ask him what's up and he tells me that his teacher asked if there were any songs he wanted to learn, and these were the ones he was suggesting! LOL. His teacher was doing his best to humor him but couldn't find any piano arrangements for these songs. No surprise there! :) I told my son we'll take some time and find some songs he likes that may lend themselves to a piano arrangement.

    Apples to potatoes - 1 dude can wow a crowd by playing a simple song by himself with an acoustic and the other can wow as a high level magician on electric guitar while taking over the mix of a band.
