Cause i like hear in almost every song which has an acoustic guitar as the rhythm i noticed they seem to be able to get this sliding sound when they change chord, well that happens normally but it only makes a small noise so do they make the sound seem really exagerated how do they come up with is and is what kind of guitars are these possible on

It's the sound you get from almost all acoustic guitars, but why it's louder on some than others I dunno. Maybe because some are plugged into amplifiers, put up the treble a bit or something n it would probably make more of that noise.

You mean that scratching sound? I think that's only from having hard fingers from playing a lot of guitar, I also assume there's the option of emphasizing it in post production etc.

i see so its after recording trick no wonder i cant seem to hear it much on lives compared to records

i mean the scratching sound or that kind of swishing kind of sound when their hands move around the fretboard to change chord or position

It is most noticeable on steel electro-acoustics when they are amplified.

To "exaggerate" it, plug your guitar in, and increase the treble through the amp.

Play bar chords so you have to slide everywhere, and focus mainly on the E shape as it covers the thicker (more scratchy) strings with your (in theory) very calloused index finger tip.

If it were me I would want to do in recording because it can emphasize certain rhythms, make the whole track seem more natural, and it adds a certain airyness to the acoustic guitar instead of just doing dull chords.

Not that I would do it in recording...

I see what you're saying now- the sound of the friction between your fingers and the strings as they slide up and down the neck. Why would you want to emphasize that sound more?

slide when you switch chords

You can make it a bit louder by depressing the strings very lightly as you move your hand. So that the strings don't touch the fretboard at all but are a little towards them.

I practised it when I learn to play 'Gonna Leave You' =P

What they do while recording an acoustic guitar is seperatly record the guitar noise and the chords someone plays. Afterwards you can start mixing the desirable noise with the guitar and there you go.

i know what sound you're talking about because i make it a lot. i think its just something that certain people have and others don't. it could be from callouses because mine are pretty hard. it just happens though, i don't actually try to make the sound
my stuff:
schecter c-1+
ibanez rg3exfm1
schecter avenger 7-string with emgs
esp/ltd mh-50
peavey 6505+ 112 combo
tc electronic polytune

I'm pretty sure that tone is there because the guitarist uses round wound strings(which make that noise) and because the guitar is most likely plugged into an amp.
