Playing Acoustic Guitar for the First Time!

  • Published on Aug 2, 2019
  • In this video I unbox and play my first ever acoustic guitar! Though I've been playing electric guitar for over 3 years now, I have never played acoustic guitar so I wanted to share the experience with all of you :).

    I didn't have a great recording setup for the guitar for this video (new to recording acoustic guitar) and just used my camera audio. But will improve it for any future videos with the guitar :).

    You play with such passion that your face is transformed. And you have your own very original style. I congratulate you.

    Bob Dylan songs are just made for the acoustic. First song I ever learned to finger pick was "Don't Think Twice ('Cause it's Alright)". Check out for almost every song ever written by everyone. PS - your enthusiasm makes me smile.

    Acoustic Suggestions for you:
    'Jane Says' will be a nice one to pound on the acoustic. Fun to play. R.E.M. 'Losing My Religion', Alice in Chains 'No Excuses', and of course SuperTramp's 'Give a Little Bit'.
    Zepplin has a few. 'Over the Hills and Far Away', 'Tangerine', 'Bron-Y-Aur Stomp' is a real hoot to play once you master the intro. ENJOY!!

    Some Beatles songs are very fun to play, like Blackbird or Norwegian Wood. Songs from Life is Strange are great too, To all of you is my favorite. And I'm currently learning Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton 😊

    Try something from Tenacious D, for example "Kickapoo", or "Across the Universe" or "Blackbird" from the Beatles, or check out the album "Uneasy Listening" by HIM

    Rachel, I want to suggest “Silver Wheels” by Nancy Wilson. It’s a fantastic acoustic piece.

    Rachel, don’t forget, Acoustic includes steel string guitar. But, it also includes Nylon string Classical guitar. Some of the most incredible and amazing sounds I’ve heard, came from guitarists playing, Nylon string, Classical Guitar.

    I have an advice for you and it is to press the strings harder, you're definitely not used to pressing the strings hard on each fret.

    Nothing exposes your weaknesses like acoustic guitar.
