If you’re looking for the best acoustic guitar album, this list is for you. Here are ten of my favorite acoustic guitar albums ever recorded. From folk to country to rock, these albums represent some of the most iconic and timeless records in all of music history.
Each one of these albums was carefully selected after years of listening, playing, jamming, and learning songs off of these tracks. All of the albums featured on this list are live recordings, meaning there was an audience and the musicians didn’t have the chance to do multiple tracks or takes.
Additionally, each of these albums prominently features the use of acoustic guitar. I’m not talking about just some chord strumming — each of these albums really showcases the abilities of acoustic guitarists.
If there was a live acoustic guitar album that you think belonged on this list but was left off, be sure to leave a comment below and let me know! I’m always excited to hear new music and get inspired from artists around the world!
From there, you’ll hear a little more about the 90-Day progress parties at Tony’s Acoustic Challenge. And, while you may have heard me tell you that your guitar success is directly related to your guitar routine, I want you to hear how this worked for a fellow TAC Family member.
To end things, as always, you’ll get your weekly dose of acoustic guitar news you can use. This week’s highlights include a D-18 battle from The North American Guitar, Heartbreaker Guitars highlight, and Luca Stricagnoli and his performance of “Smooth Criminal.”
