    Do you play regularly with an acoustic guitar? If you play, how often?

    I've got a lousy acoustic guitar but I play it almost daily. When I feel like playing (mostly late) I would have to keep the volume on my electric guitar very low. I like to hear my electric guitar through amp and I don't like to use headphones so I'm kind of forced to play with an acoustic.

    I usually pick up my acoustic around the house before I grab one of my electrics.

    Sold mine. I never played it. I'd rather play an electric unplugged.

    I only use my acoustic to teach on. Any of you ever teach, it's not uncommon to want make your playing as different from your teaching as possible. Strangly, though, if I'm out somewhere and there are guitars around, I usually pick up an acoustic over an electric. So maybe it's just MY acoustic I don't PLAY on. ????

    I have an acoustic I fool around on every so often.

    Anything I can play on electric I can play on acoustic. I may transpose octaves for the high notes but the patterns are still the same. As a yungin' acoustic was all I had. Built up my hand strength bigtime. When I got my first real electric. A (76 Les Paul standard) I had to use 11.-56. gauge strings becuase I kept snappin' 10. thru-46.'s like rubber bands. I play acoustic while watching tv. But I still use one in the studio on occasion. Lata' Snake

    I've always disliked how a regular acoustic plays because I wanted more of an electric feel and sound. I purchased a Fender Telecoustic and I like it very much. Now, if I play a 12 string, I don't mind the big jumbo feel. To me , that's more for strumming any way.

    The last 5 or 6 years have found myself playing the acoustic a lot more then the electric. I write songs on the acoustic and love the natural tone better. Just a preference. There is really not a guitar I don't love. My electric\acoustic preference depends on my mood at the time too.
