ok, this is seriously bugging me. i love both, and play acoustic. my coustin, who admittedly has been playing a lot longer than i have, fancies himself quite knowledgable about guitar. enough to be able to make the claim that electric is innately better than acoustic. i told him id show him how acoustic can atleast match electric, using a few keller williams songs to prove this. heres what he just told me in an AIM diologue... "lol dude ur never gonna get convinced until u get good at guitar. you dont have the experience or exposure to make a statement like that... first of all, acoustic guitar cant "rock" by definition. its a mellow instrument. u can strum as hard as u possibly can and it still isnt gonna "rock". i think your problem is that you think something rocks because someone takes an acoustic guitar and plays 1000 notes a second. all that is is practice. i dont consider someone playing scales really fast talent... its a skill, and a skill that requires forever to learn. for anything u send me on acoustic i can send u something just as hard to play on electric and chances are it sounds 10x cooler. u like pink floyd, look at david gilmore, one of the best, most melodic guitarists of all time. u wanna sound that good? ur never gonna do it on an acoustic. u need a deep sounding les paul with a sick, loud amp, and u'll piss ur pants at how good it sounds." What do all you fellas think?
