I just want to give a quick PSA to all frustrated rock stars and shy white girls. I understand you need a way to “vent” and “express yourself”, but can we save the failed attempts at coffee house stardom and backroads bar high life and not pick the an acoustic guitar? I definitely respect anybody who can really get down on an acousitc and twiddle those things something mean. Its a tuff instrument just to pick up and I respect that.
BUT…..there seems to be a music industry practice that frustrated former rock stars/boy band members/shy white girls turn to the acoustic guitar to find themselves. No people thats called growing up.
See I’m always seeing/hearing somebody on some street corner in their best John Mayer voice trying to do their best Mayer impersonation. STOP IT! Dudes at my high school (yes i said dudes) used the acousitc guitar strictly as a means to pick up women. I’m talking 3rd string fullbacks up to drama
Bottom line: If you pick up the acoustic guitar after the age of 10, do us all a favor and put it down.
Have a nice day.
