Surely it's to do with the writing, arrangement and relationship with other instruments? You can write totally none generic arrangements on an acoustic guitar, especially if you play around with unusual tunings, scales and chords.

This is as stupid as saying all use of distortion on an electric guitar is boring.

Acoustic is terrible. The best way to ruin an electric guitar based song is to do an acoustic version. It's like making that certain song as generic and tedious as possible.

When bands do acoustic albums, or unplugged sets, that is the worst possible way to share music with the audience. No uniqueness in sound at all. It just becomes boring and totally uninteresting.

This is a very boring song.

To be fair, I kind of agree with them.

Go to any open mic event and 9 out of 10 of the acts will sound exactly the same in terms of their guitar playing. Just generic strum, strummy strummers just about capable of changing chords in time with their song - if they want something to sound different they just play exactly the same chords/rhythm but with a capo on fret X...

Granted a few will stand out for whatever reason - good finger pickers, ones who come up with good chord sequences and progressions, loopers (although they are becoming ten a penny these days after the success of Ed Sheeran...) - but they are the exception rather than the norm.

That's not at all what he said though. Hopix actually suggested what you're getting at, that it depends on what you do with it, and LiTs response was "Acoustic is terrible"

So what you're agreeing to is that acoustic guitar is terrible always, no matter what is played or what the context is.

Good musicians in general are exceptions rather than the norm.

I would actually say that it's pretty boring It's definitely unique though. Ben Howard strikes a perfect combo of unique and interesting to me:

Play MK Ultra on acoustic and then with Muse's effects added on electric. BOOM!

If you settle for acoustic, you are doomed for mediocrity. It's all about effect pedals in music.

Yeah, you picked the boring ones. Maybe except Mount Eerie.

Where is Sun Kil Moon? He's decent.

Only Josh Homme can write great music with acoustic guitar like Mosquito Song. But only because he is the God of modern rock music and has the most talent ever.

By the way, altough pairing with lyrics, songwriting can be good, all these songs on acoustic still sound the same and I mean the sound which the guitar makes: " transmitting the vibration of the strings to the air".. This freaking simple, strung sound is so boring.... Thank God humans invented how to amplify and add effects in the same time.

I get angry when I hear that every song on an accoustic guitar is crap. I's not true.

Maybe you don't like this genre, ok. But only listen to the work on the guitar.

Would you prefer "More than words" by Extreme on electric guitar? It would kill the atmospere for me.

You can play great, these songwriters are good guitar players, no doubt. However, my main problem is with the acoustic sound itself. You cannot really create your own sound. If you experiment with for instance 20 effects at once and you just created a unique sound, that's more like it for me.

However, I still like a few acoustic songs but it is extremely rare.

You must really hate drums then.

And pianos.

And pretty much any instrument out there.
