Has anyone else ever experienced this? I have been playing my electric guitars for a long time now, and have given no love to my acoustic for almost 4 months now. The problem is that I'm without my electrics at the moment and I can't seem to play a damn thing on my acoustic! Has this happened to anyone else here?

I dunno. I play bass, but sometimes I find it better to play w/o plugging in because the acoustic sound lets you hear what you're really playing. Sometimes the amp and distortion can cover up your mistakes, while thats ok, it's better to have no mistakes to hide, amirite?

Play that kinda stuff on your clean channel, maybe with a little reverb.


Just start out by playing on acoustic what you would be playing on electric. If need be, learn a few chord shapes and noodle around with em. There's nothing that says you have to play X riff on electric and Y riff on acoustic. You might find some of your riffs sound better on the ol' gitbox

just force yourself to play it. Or listen to acoustic artists and get into that frame of mind. Leo Kottke, Andy McKee, Antoine DuFour, California Guitar Trio, Tom Rush, etc. In the future when you go to play guitar, stop before you pick up the electric. Just stop and stand there for a second, turn to the acoustic, walk over to it, and make yourself pick it up and start playing, even if you really wanna play electric.

this used to happen to me alot, but good advice: now i never go a while without playing a guitar, it keeps the fingers and the mind in practice... i find it's easy to correct though; learn a few simple finger excersises, and when you pick it up, do those first, it'll teach you to get the feel of the guitar a little before you put any actual thought into it, it's a good way to "bond" with a guitar, which is totally essential.

It's not exactly the same but...

My buddy has an acoustic and I have two electrics. Whenever we're hanging out at his place someone ends up picking it up and messing with it. Eventually someone sends it to me and is like "hey you play a little don't you? Play us something." and I just freeze up.

I don't know anything that really sounds good acoustic. All I can ever think of is the intro to "one" which I don't play often enough to really remeber, or "sweet dreams". I know like four chords and no strummy songs that I can make out of them. I'm more of a "look at the tab and play it" guy
