shredding isnt everything IMO
personally i only play acoustic. i think its a more honest form of playing guitar.
although i definitely respect any player who can jam some awesome licks on an electric i just prefer acoustic.

Only playing acoustic isn't the honest form of playing guitar. The honest form of playing guitar is practicing it, and not just playing it to shred, but to actually play it.
With electric and acoustic, there is no winner in whats better

i agree that the only way to play guitar would be to practice and play music that you enjoy.
for the sake of music not trying to get laid/famous etc.

all i meant was that with an electric you get amplifiers, effects, pedals etc. and with acoustic its just you and the guitar. albeit you could hook your acoustic up and use amps, pedals, etc but i dont.

the sound that i get out of my acoustic is the sound that i worked and practiced for
not what some machine allows me to do.

no offense to the electric enthusiasts. once again i completely respect any guitarist who can shred on an electric and i dont think either is better or worse. i just enjoy acoustic thats all.

It did get significantly better towards the end but it still made me want to burn my guitars because some old guy trying to play a guitar and winking at a camera could well be all I think of everytime I see them now.
Thanks a lot, asshole.

          Electric guitars still work unplugged, and every technique used in shred can be used and heard unplugged on an electric. Those 'machines' just make it louder or add effects, just like if you put your accoustic through an amp like you said.

          I gave him his first "like" for his youthfullness. At least he's having fun instead of sitting around watching the tube and ordering from infomercials.

          i realize those techniques can be heard and utilized while the electric is unplugged. im not trying to put any electric players down. its just that i feel its....cheating.....a little.
          it is so easy to sound "good" or to "shred" on electric (as evidenced by this video) while with acoustic its takes a bit of actual work/practice in order to shred.

          with acoustic its just my hands, the strings, and the guitar. it feels so much more pure and honest. as in "these are the sounds i worked for. listen"

          i also realize this is a very controversial statement and that there are flaws but its just the way i feel. cant help it man.
          once again i would like to stress that i totally respect all electric guitar players and i realize how many years many artists have taken in order to tear an electric apart with god like shreds.

          the electric is just not for me and i could never see myself playing one onstage. go figure.

          well actually i have watched the video and i gotta say i didnt enjoy it.
          though honestly i am pretty new so maybe i dont know how the Pit works.

          please enlighten me

          Where do you think he got all the Dale Earnhardt stuff?

          edit:^ DUUDE! What you are saying makes NO sense whatsoever to what this thread is about! We get it, acoustic is more honest. No need to back it up.
          I've met a couple of people with the same opinion, and it seemed that as well as they could back it up, they had never actually touched an electric guitar before. Sure, think it's more honest, but just know that no one is fooled when the guy in the OP says that he is "shredding" because he isn't. Unless you pile on some serious "The Edge" effects, we can hear every mistake, and even then it all turns to rubbish if what you're playing doesn't sound good.

          Just sayin', if this thread was about Acoustic vs. Electric, then you'd be perfect. Not trying to be hard on you. I can see you are new, so welcome.

          How it cheating? You do exactly the same as on an accoustic.

          It's just as easy to sound good on accoustic (just go to youtube to see the army of accoustic players along side the army of wannabe shredders). And as far as shredding goes, again, it's just as easy on an accoustic if you have it set up right. You can see plenty of videos of people shredding on an accoustic.
