Topic: Do I need another acoustic guitar?

Hi!

I used to play with a standard tuning, though, I play 2-3 songs with a Drop-D tuning.
I broke my 1 string (the thinest) by repetitively doing this... So, should I get another guitar especially for the Drop-D tuning?

Thanks for your answer!

Definitely.

That is a far better excuse than the last one I used for getting a new guitar, it even makes sense. lol

Sounds like an excellent excuse for a second acoustic.  Besides, everyone should have at LEAST two.  wink

That's like asking "Do I need another drink?" -  99% of the time, the answer is YES!

Rule No. 1 - If it sounds good - it is good!

Your excuse is as good as any, and better than some.

Re: Do I need another acoustic guitar?

You don't need an excuse, although that is a good one. Of course you need another one.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: Do I need another acoustic guitar?

Guitars are like pringles,  betcha can't stop at one.......Never need an excuse ........

however, you always live with the fear that if you go into a coma, your wife will sell your guitars for what you told her they cost!  smile

Yes! Absolutley! Positively Yes!

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: Do I need another acoustic guitar?

The answer to the question "Do I need another guitar?" is yes. 

The answer to the question "How many guitars do you need?" is more.

This is a great place to ask a question like that! Like asking the drivers at the Indy 500 if they'd like a faster car.

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro / Gretsch Streamliner G2420T
AMPS:  Traynor YCS50 / Peavey VK212 / Traynor AM150T
EFFECTS: Boss ME-80 Multi-effects / Ibanez WD7 wah

Re: Do I need another acoustic guitar?

Would you play golf with only one club?  Unlike electrics, acoustics can only produce one type of "sound" depending on the construction and types of woods used, so I think it is necessary to own several types of acoustic guitars depending on the type of music/song you're playing. smile

In my opinion (my wife doesn't agree) it would be ideal for an acoustic guitar player to own combos of rosewood/spruce, rosewood/cedar, mahogany/spruce, mahogany/cedar and all-mahogany guitars, with ovangkol , koa, etc also considered.  Various shapes (jumbo, dreadnaught, auditorium, concert, etc will also produce different sounds/tones so there are a lot of combos to choose from.  Then there are 12-strings, alternate tunings, Nashville high-tuning etc. 

No way should one only own one acoustic guitar.  smile

Re: Do I need another acoustic guitar?

Of course you need more than one. Different reasons. Different tunings. The color of your clothes that day. You may not want to carry one to another room, so there will be one waiting for you in that room. Because Tuesday is the 3rd day of the week. And of course because there`s no bones in ice cream. There are many reasons to have more than one. Use your imagination.
