So what do you guys think. I myself feel that I like listening to a good electric show, rather than listen to a Great acoustic show. Every once in a while I do get the urge to listen to some acoustic dead, but for the most part I prefer electric. With an electric a how, it seems like the boys have more room and freedom to space out, and jam, instead of playing whatever song they are playing straight forward. Anyhow I'm looking for your opinions, so let's see what you all have to say.

Peace And b Wild

With you 100%.

I used to like Reckoning and would put it on frequently as a newer DH, but drifted away and never went back. It takes a lot more talent to play Dead music acoustic though, so I have big time respect for it. Just seems limited by comparison.

May I just say - by the way- I can relate to your signature. I got real used to hanging with a group of people where we did not have to talk a whole lot to figure out what each other were thinking or why we were doing whatever we were doing. Now? Not so much.

It depends very much on my mood but yes the electric enviroment gave them more sonic liberty to travell onto our brain cells.

On the other hand being european I am not the most experienced in the bluegrass music but I have lately listened to some incredible artists who really bring the acoustic instruments to a new level. I think that our guys weren't at those acoustic levels (except for Garcia on some nignts) ... please have mercy for this honest opinion

I almost wish this was one a scale... something like, strongly prefer electric being a 5, and strongly prefer acoustic a 1...

I strongly prefer electric... more jamming, power, etc.
You can get a lot of wierd sounds via electronics.

Seems like I was the only person voting acoustic last time this poll came up a few years ago. Some things never change.

Maybe it is just because I never got to see an acoustic show with Jerry. I just love those '70s acoustic first sets!

You play guitar too, right Box?
I'm assuming mainly you play acoustic...

I started playing acoustic in January... "I've got blisters on my fingers!"

Yes I do, and mostly acoustic although I have a semi-hollow also.

Those blisters will turn into calluses if yo just keep it up!

What kind of guitar did you get?

Nice to see you picked up a guitar Koch. I play mostly acoustic as well but I do have a nice Telecaster that I pick up now and then. My acoustic guitars are
Gibson J 160E and a Martin DX1. I'm pretty much a hack, but I sure have fun playin'. More of a hobby than anything else. What kind of guitar do you have box?

Right now I am borrowing a friend's classical acoustic... falling in love with it. I wanted to buy it from him, but it's a family heirloom apparently.

I'm saving up to buy one of my own...

I fiddled around on an electric of his a bit, it was much more forgiving, to say the least!

Still in the nascent stages here, but I'm liking it.

This is a very, very tough question to answer. There just was not enough acoustic Dead out there. And when they were doing there acoustic set the song lists were always very similar. Would have been nice to hear an acoustic Dark Star or maybe Fire On The Mountain thrown into the mix. Dispite that there's nothing better then getting up on Sunday morning do a little wake N bake, cook breakfast and crank Reckoning.

My favorite acoustic is a Breedlove cedar with ebony fretboard; made right here in Oregon!
