I understand to each their own. Everyone has different musical taste and that is cool. I wouldn't have it any other way. It's America, and music is a form of communication. For me I just believe that acoustic is the purest form and I ike the fact that more artist and musicians like myself are starting to see and understand that.
What got me playing the acoustic guitar was people like James Taylor, Bread, Eagles, Dan Folgerberg, Jim Croce. A couple of my favorite songs to play is "If" by Bread and "Dust In The Wind" by Kansas. There are many, many more great acoustic songs but a few like these two never die. They were part of an era that were ingrained into lives that never really know it untill you hear it again and then it comes to you, WOW, I never really understood just how great that song was untill now.
I've played in several bands, most recently in a church band now and I like it but it's just not acoustical enough for me. I'm looking for some others that feel the same way about good acoustical/light classical rock music. Here is another one for you. Savage Garden, "I Knew I Loved You Before I Met You". OK, I'm telling my age now but that was music. Maroon 5 has some good ballad type acoustic out there. Edwin McCain is stepping up to the plate. The Calling.
Keep making music,
