Thread Name: Acoustic Rock
Subject: RE: Acoustic Rock
The entire term "acoustic" is such a nebulis term anyway... I have an Oscar Schmidt resonator that has a ceramic pickup in it... Most folks would look at it and say, "Yup, that is an acoustic geetar" and leave it at that... Then I plug in and run it thru a Fender Blue Junior tube0type amp and mess with the setting and all of a sudden what looks like an acoustic instrument sounds like Leslie West of the band "Mountain"...

But, hey... I can play it anywhere else where supposed acoustic music is being played...

Used to be acoustic meant just that... Now everyone plugs in..
