  • Acoustic vs electric solo/duos

    Anybody swing both ways?  I see some duos with an acoustic player and an electric player doing more lead work. Does electric go better with percussion or backing tracks? Are you an acoustic guitar or electric guitar solo/duo? Why?

    In most duo settings (where I am the side man) I will play both.

      Guess I should have stated that we both play acoustics. There's a new tele arriving today and I'm considering bringing it along to future gigs.

    in my solo shows I use both. Sometimes at the same time with my hybrids.
