Groovy Acoustic Guitarists

who are your acoustic guitarts that have a groove, trippy-ness about them? Mine are Doyle Dykes, Andy McKee, Tommy Emmanuel etc. Although, I'm really digging Andy McKee's stuff at the moment.

..I'll start.

I don't play guitar or know much about guitar but it seems like if you play acoustic the guitar you play makes the tone for you, where if you play electric it is up to you to dial your own tone in

I dunno, but I'm a beginner still who is trying to learn to play. I have an acoustic with steel strings and I'm having a difficult time. But when I picked up my roommates electric, it seems a lot easier.

I think acoustics (especially cheaper ones) tend to have the strings higher off the fret board. You have to press harder. That is partly why electrics are easier to play. Also, an electric with good pickups will pick up most everything where as an acoustic may not.

As for the thread topic, I can't think of any at the moment who are strictly acoustic other than Andy McKee.

to a certain point; you can effect tone on an acoustic by the types/gauge of strings you use; action/set up, pick attack / dynamics etc.

But yes, for the most part the 'tone' is pretty much there. Which is why the really great, warm & rich sounding acoustics are $2k+; and why others are $200. Night and day difference, not only in playability but also tone.

My dad and I have identical late 70's Yamaha guitars (which were great quality back then) that really have great warm tonality; good volume, easty top play. Great guitar. He also has a Martin ( I can't recall the model), smaller auditorium style, and it doesn't have as much punch - but it does provide excellent, bright response; perfect for flat-picking etc.

He also has a great Huss & Dalton that is fantastic.

I wish I had eleventy billion dollars, I'd have tons of guitars.

I really like the record label (Candyrat?) that McKee plays for. The website has a lot of interesting, and crazy talented artists similar (for the most part) to McKee.

Well shit I thought I posted this earlier, but I guess not.

If you wanna different sound on your acoustic, I've been playing a lot here lately, and if you like to bend the way I do, drop the whole guitar a full step.
D
G
C
F
A
D

And if you like the regular drop D tuning pull the low E all the way down to C. The strings get really bendy, and give a darker feel.

Dimebag used to do this even on the electric. His strings were literally falling off the guitar.

The reason acoustics are harder to play than electrics is because the string tension is a lot higher. Thus, you have to press harder.

I'll have to check out more of McKee's stuff.

I've always liked Jack Johnson's slack key style

Helps to have a 7 string guitar.
