Playing “Acoustic” On Electric

These last few days we’ve been talking a lot about “acoustic” blues, in the sense that it’s blues you play by yourself – and not with a band…

But I really want to emphasize that these skills are just as useful on an electric guitar – with a band – as they are without!

In fact, in some ways, this might help your band playing (soloing instead of solo…) as much or more than just about anything else you can do.

So check out this video, it’s not real long, and see what I mean:

    You are so talented all I can do is say wow! What would be great to show is a clip from your “play acoustic jam alone program” and then play the same initial clip on the electric as a comparison. It would show so much to remove any thought that it is for acoustic only etc.

    Most all the Blues players switched from Acoustic to electric long ago. When I am learning something I may play the acoustic or electric guitar. This course is that for me just learn it on the acoustic then at times jam it out on the electric guitar out on the porch.
