Synthesizers. BOOMING snare hits. Shredding. The 80s aren’t known for acoustic guitar playing. But that’s will change in this episode of Acoustic Tuesday!
We’ll be taking a look at the 10 best acoustic guitar albums of the 80s, paying close attention to some of the best flatpickers and fingerpickers of that decade. I’m not talking about one-off power ballads that use an acoustic guitar in the intro. I’m talking about whole albums that pushed the genre of acoustic guitar music.
You’ll recognize some classics on here like Tony Rice’s “Church Street Blues,” and Michael Hedge’s “Aerial Boundaries.” With each of the albums chosen, I’ll highlight my favorite song off the album in the hopes that you can check them out for yourself.
In addition to discussing the 10 best acoustic guitar albums of the 80s, you’ll hear a very important story from TAC Family member Johnny. He noticed that he actually enjoys playing guitar now more than he did when he was younger. Why is this? Be sure to listen to him tell his story about building a routine that lets him find more fun, focus, and progress on his guitar journey.
Last but not least, we’ll also cover some of the latest acoustic guitar news. From chatting coffee with one of my favorite acoustic duos to checking out the beautiful craftsmanship of metal engravers and inlay workers, this episode is sure to scratch that acoustic guitar content itch.
