Ok, so me and a friend are trying to write some songs, and so far we've got one, but he wants to have more energy in our songs... does anyone have any tips for getting more energy out of an acoustic?

P.S. For right now, its just him on vocals and me on acoustic guitar and background vocals

Energy? Are you talking about achieving a specific timbre or more volume? Are you talking about techniques to improve your dynamics and improvisation? We need more to go on than just "energy."

Wouldn't that be your problem as the songwriter? Study up on pop music progressions. Or, look into what songs you consider to be "energetic."

As a general rule, if you want the song to be lively, steer clear of minor chords and the scales that go along with them. For the most part, minors sound more moody and dark, while majors give a better pick me up feel. Brighter and more lively. Spruce up the chord progressions you're already using by subbing in some maj7th chords.
