    My electric Guitar is called Chump Berry.

    Chump hardly ever gets used and sounds like shit. He cost 150 and I've since spent 300 making the little prick playable. Only recently started using him because of recording.

    I still hate Chump.

    On the other hand, my acoustics... my beautiful children Calida Corazon and Norman 'Woody' Woods.... Bubba, old man Arthur Spencer (age 70+) and the lovely Pandora Mandola... they have all given me nothing but joy since the day I bought them.

    Anyway I bet if you could poll everybody on the planet the sound of acoustic guitar would be more popular...

    Exclamation ...

    mixing classical guitar with sweet beats from a program like Fruity Loops is the way to go...

    I like the sound of a good acoustic mixed with the sound of a good nylon classical.....

    I guess the poll does not lie, people like to hear acoustic guitar in their music when it fits.

    always room for an acoustic i guess.. I find that there is a lot of rock records who just gets so much better by a little acoustic track in the end..

    I think I voted in your poll before reading your post. I only listen to solo acoustic guitarist anymore. I hate it when a player mucks up the song by singing in it. Maybe that's why I don't listen to to much radio music anymore. The loss of melody and passion in todays music just does'nt do anything for me.

    Go listen to "Jar of Flies" by AIC right now, and then come back and tell me why "metal heads" only want heavy tunes.

    Done properly, acoustic music can be just as "heavy" as a distorted electic...


    That's my two cents anyway.......
