I hate it when you ask someone if "they play guitar" and they say, " yeah, I play the acoustic."
"you don't play the acoustic, you're just another tool who thinks its cool to play guitar!"

sorry, i had to vent my frustrations. but im sure you'll understand

I started on acoustic for three years before buying an electric.

I played the acoustic about 2 years before buying my first electric.

It IS cool to play guitar.

I think he means that they say they prefer to play acoustic, while it isn't bad -- They probably are those guys at school who know a few chords and play emo songs or really easy ones and talk like they are the shit.

I'd much rather play acoustic nicely rather than OMGSHRED RAWKANDROLL on an electric.

Way to stereotype. I play acoustic because I like it and it's more of my style of music? Oh no, I must be a douchebag.

Oh wow. Most people who chose electric over acoustic did because it's 'cool'.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

IMO after playing 10 years, the acoustic is the more enjoyable of the two. It's harder to play, takes more talent cuz there isn't any distortion to hide behind.....

so basically....F*CK YOU!!!!

Maybe they don't have money for an electric? Maybe their favorite bands play acoustic and they like that?

I agree with the OP somewhat. See, there is a massive difference between these two types of people:

1. I only play/originally played acoustic only because it's all I had/could find/afford, or I just like it better.

2. I'm going to buy an acoustic guitar so I can write love songs and bring it to campfires and maybe I'll get a woman to love me because of it.


One of these types is a douche bag, the other isn't.

o_o.
I have an electric.
I wish I had an acoustic. The amp doesn't bring the pure acoustic sound (yet...what elec. guitar amp does that anyway?)

ouch damn why so angry, i play acoustic because 1. it was my first guitar given to me by my grandpa and 2. i can bring it places easier than all my equipment and 3. i live in a small apartment and the noise of electric doesn't go down with the neighbors

but i know what you mean when someone picks up a guitar just to say they play
#40
it's been stated numerous times what a douche you are. that being said, being a truly technically proficient acoustic player is infinitely harder than being a technically proficient electric player. playing flamenco or classical guitar will always be harder than shredding, always.
