I watch a show on youtube called Acoustic Tuesday.Today,the host ran through a list of players that are known primarily as electric guitar players and were rarely caught on video playing acoustic.I've seen a clip of Stevie Ray Vaughan on acoustic playing,I think it was Pride And Joy but Tony featured a video I'd never seen of Stevie playing a '29 Gibson L1 in France that is pretty amazing.

And there is this one from his Unplugged episode.

We can't forget Hendrix.

This Johnny Winter is on acoustic resonator.


I haven't dusted off the old solid body electric and fired up the Delta Blues in quite some time as I play acoustic at home,in jams locally and at a friend's coffee shop in another town.I guess you could say I live and breath acoustic guitar.If I had a dump truck full of money I'd have a warehouse full of bikes,cars,trucks and guitars.

Fireboltwillie,Prince is not my cup of coffee but I'll give him props for his guitar playing and I didn't know he played much acoustic.

Trying to convince my honey to go on a date to see Tommy Emmanuel in March. Might just drag her there with me.

I've not seen Tommy E. live but looking at the video of him on Woodsongs and some other sites it looks like he puts on a hell of a show.

Buellish,

This thing gets rid of all the excuses for not playing the electric at home.

Just plug into it and play.

I've been to see Tommy Emmanuel twice. Definitely go and see him if you can, you won't be disappointed.

How can you guys forget Mark?



Mary Spender does some great gear videos as well - this chick rocks. She does a few numbers with Leo, and her version of "Fast Car" is amazing.

Greg,it isn't a question of difficulty or making excuses.I have the Delta Blues and a Fender Acoustasonic 150 set up and ready to use in the same room as my guitars.The reality is that I don't have much interest in playing the solidbody anymore.I played electric for over 30 years in bands and that has lost it's appeal.
