Ive always loved the sound of the acoustic guitar but it seems like ever since ed sheeran came around everyones just finding the cheapest acoustic they can find learning 8 basic chords and spreading a video of themselves singing ang playing (terribly) all over facebook

Im kinda starting to hate the acoustic guitar now

Anyway what are your opinions on the acoustic craze

Make an acoustic video that isn't just 8 chords and crappy singing. Like maybe 9 chords and less crappy singing. You'll be the king of the fags.

The real question is, why do you even care?

Wouldnt be able to play that 9 chord song without fingerpicking and that would just confuse the fags

You should try different acoustic dramas other than your standard rock (sorry to generalise but I'm assuming that's what's got you bored). Personally, I really like Acoustic pop music:

It's Chinese. Cheer, one of my idols.

I actually like the Live Original better than the Acoustic version though.

Yeah Ben Howard is pretty good.

I think what Ed Sheeran does is good but its not my taste

Ben Howard is the Ed Sheeran of hipsters. Go listen to Dave McPherson.


Also check out his former bandmate from InMe Ben Konstantinovic. His solo stuff is good.

Acoustic > Electric

Because Andy Mckee. Enough said.

Eh, not a huge fan. He's good at slapstyle playing, but his compositions are weak IMHO. He's not really varied at all. If you want to talk acoustic masters, there's no conversation with Bensusan or Hedges
My God, it's full of stars!

I'll check them out.

I'm not too educated in the field of acoustic/classical guitar so much yet. I only know of what my band's guitarist lends me (probably threw some Mckee towards me because he most likely considered it as good introductory material).

I don't think the acoustic "craze" is anything new. If we're talking about the "indie-3-chorders" (the ones that learn 3 chords that look like a GMaj open and then just move the bass note to a C or a B and play them in different orders), and then sing in a breath-ey pussy voice that has that "faux-lots of emotion" sound to it, then I've been seeing them around since about '06. It's annoying, but it's a style of music, and it's easy to do. Get over it. It's not going away until we have a "hipster-holocaust" or something.

Cheer has been around for years. She's very underground but probably one of the most respected musicians, composers and songwriters in China and Taiwan.

Since, I'm at it, here's another Chinese singer who I really admire as well:

This is a real acoustic track from by Cheer, which the Threadstarter should also listen to.

Also this one >_<

Alright, this isn't acoustic and neither is it Cheer. It's someone else.
