yeah I love him, and he's a great example of just how much you can do with just a voice and a guitar. ironically, I prefer his lusher full band stuff though

A real guitar player could transcribe any song from any genre and format it to an acoustic guiar. Like those guys that turn rap songs into folk songs. All songs have notes.

duh?

It wouldn't even be hard to play it acoustic, where there are actually notes, it would just be pointless

Yeah let me just play this on acoustic:

Why would it be pointless? Any song can be stripped down to its chord or root notes with vocal applied. What's stopping you?

I just youtubed some Pere Ubu and these songs are very rhythmic. Very much inclined for an acoustic guitar which is a kind of a rhythmic instrument.

Drums are tuned. If you mash down on all the notes on a keyboard - a note is formed. Even a badly played guitar chord has a scale that it falls in to.

Are you being serious?

Don't blame your inability around a musical instrument stop you from thinking that any song could not be played around a campfire.

Unless we're talking about abstract noise or something which you're not.

It's not a question of whether it can be done like I said

It's a question of why the fuck would you

This is where being a proficient or knowledgeable guitar player comes in to play. You can transcribe individual notes or melodies into chord progressions. If you're any good.

i remember randomly watching an unplugged lorraine hill (i think...?) concert on mtv, a few years back. i'm not into her music but it really inspired me because she basically did her rap numbers with only an acoustic guitar (and perhaps very sparse other instrumentation).
half chording, half tapping on the body or on the strings to create a rhythmic effect. i would never think doing rap with a classical guitar could work so well but it did.

re: this discussion, it really is possible to fill an entire room with lush arrangements using only one acoustic guitar. it's all a matter of how good a songwriter/musician you are.
that's not to shit on shoegaze or rock or any electric genre, as i wholeheartedly love those as well, but something about the craftsmanship and minimalist approach that's required to really get the most of just a voice and an acoustic guitar is extremely compelling for me.

Again, yes it could be done. But it would be ridiculous. Do you not see the comedy here

I'm getting trolled

Kozelek is another example of someone who can bring the most supremely powerful music with just his voice and a trusty guitar

For my money Funk is the best thing you can play on guitar

Unless you're like RHCP and don't have a cool bone in your entire body

I worship D. Boon as a guitar player and usually you don't do that in punk

It's fun you can play GoF songs and Minutemen songs with the same guitar setting, it's all clean treble cut out the mid and lows no distortion

It also helps to be an old souled storyteller with a voice that resonates like a wisened owl.

Listening to people play at an open mic and feeling like shit cuz they're all better than me. Dude was double-tapping and shit. They are all good singers, too.

Some guy is doing an acoustic version of Eminem's 'Lose Yourself' right now, so that makes me feel better, though.

Never had a use for a compressor before, but I have this one fuzz pedal that I can't use quietly. As soon as I engage it, the volume goes insane and everything is picked up (sometimes even get radio stations), and the only way to get it to a volume acceptable for apartment playing is to turn it so low that I'm not even getting much fuzz anymore. Or, I can turn the guitar and amp volume so low that the bypass signal in inaudible, and I only even get sound if the pedal is engaged. Which sucks if I want to alternate between distorted and clean.

I guess a compressor would help even that out.
