Topic: Acoustic or electric?
This may have been covered before but........
Wanted to take a poll on which you prefer:
The hard driving, ear drum splitting, head banging sounds from an electric
The melodic, gets in your soul, natural sound of an acoustic.
I lean toward the acoustic. I listen/watch in awe at guys like Tommy Emmanuel, Andy Mckee, Chet Atkins, Jerry Reid. You know what I'm talking about. Although my favorite genre of music is 80's hair bands. That is nothing but electric to the nth degree. I think I appreciate the artistry that comes from an acoustic guitar. It seems to me that it takes more talent to get an acoustic to sound like the fellas I mentioned than it does to get an electric to scream and melt your face off. I liken it to the diff between a photo and a pencil drawn picture. While both are great in their own right, I much prefer the pencil drawing because of the talent and work behind it. Hope that makes sense.
