Default Go on and fight with me

I personally love acoustic instruments. I agre with Keith Richards when he said "that little hole and that peice of wood, thats truth." however I have a problem. Most contemporary acoustic versions of songs fall into two diffrent catagories, their either overly piney and "woe-is-me" or their happy in that neo-hippie pop-psychology way (like O.A.R.) where they say easy-to-cheer-to things like "can we just come together as people tonight?" or "lets everyone sing along here and jsut feel the enetrgy and feel good."

I hate both of those options.

I wonder where the days of happy acoustics with sing along choruses have gone. Maybe the market trackers say they have no place in 2005 but with all the influenced youngins out there struming strings, where are the CCR wanna-be's that no how to have fun with more story than stupid catch phrases.

There was a Credence Clearwater Revisited, but they got old and died.
I agree with this.
I guess in 2005 musicians want to capitalize on all their songs by snagging teens by performing woe is me songs or let's feel good songs..
It's shlt.

Catchy is one of the only things that sells these days. You can't stop the revolution. No, you can. But you won't.

Maybe...with any sort of luck, it will about full circle, and the young ones of today will over-indulge in the quick fix, and by tomorrow they'll begin to look a little deeper for the origins. You never know, it is unlikely that things will change for sometime but there is, in your case big3, some hope maybe.

whenever i play an acoustic guitar, it just seems to have a mellow/depressing sound to it, i guess thats why so many acoustic songs are "woe is me" type thangs.

and may i add, this is probably the only decent thread here in a very very long time.

About The Meat Department
One of the strangest coincidences of a lifetime found the two members of The Meat Department patronizing the same Phoenix bar on the same night two years after their first brief acquaintance in Baltimore, MD at a Ween concert. During the first weeks or their growing friendship the two musical free-agents would attend open mic nights covering Ween songs they both knew. It wouldn't be long, however before the two discovered in each other an explosive artistic compatibility. In two months time, The Meat Department had a full set of original music and were gigging with some of the best bands in Phoenix.
