Musicians 'can push boundaries on acoustic guitar'
Acoustic guitar players have the opportunity to push the musical boundaries of what can be achieved with the instrument.
This is according to an article on the Alt Sounds website, which explained that acoustic guitars are often used as a starting point for composing tracks by songwriters.
It added that the guitar is one of the most popular musical instruments around and the possibilities of what can be achieved when using one are wide and varied.
"[There is a lot of] manipulation capable with the acoustic guitar - you can strum, pick, slap, tap and slide it," the piece pointed out.
It named artists such as Neil Young, Bon Iver and Rodrigo y Gabriela as worthy of mention in helping to expand the boundaries of what can be played on an acoustic guitar.
Last month, it was revealed that Oyster House - the company behind the London Drum Show – is looking to host an acoustic guitar conference in the UK next year, reported MI-Pro.
