|01:48 pm - POLL!!|
they're rare, but they happen
so, talking to my dad today about my 'hanukah' present (seeing as hanukah is over, but we're good like that). the original plan had been an acoustic geetar. the reason being i want a guitar at school but last year didnt have enough room for my electric with teh amp and whatnot. this year, however, i have more room as i rearranged a buncha stuff, so i could fit all my rockin' paraphenalia in there, should i so desire. that wasn't the ONLY reason i want an acoustic, however, it'd just be cool to have one. theyr'e nice and all. however, i don't know that i want one enough to justify it, just cuz it's neat, as i alreayd have a guitar whcih now can get into my room. and now, rather than think for myself, i'm enlisting your help.
[i'm not actually deciding based on what you say of course, i just wanna get some opinions. and i will be keepign the electric either way, if you were wondering]
and for an opinion baseline, what's your favorite band?
state: my back hurts
np: police - can't stand losing you

Re: Well, the obvious choice here is....
It is a great word, but not really fitting of such a (traditionally) mellow instrument. "Dreadnought" is meant to strike fear into the hearts of those who hear it... when you see a long-haired, tye-dyed-T-shirt-wearing, pot-smoking hippie playing a "dreadnought" style guitar, does it really make you want to run in fear? You may only answer yes if one or both of the following conditions apply: A) He/she smells really bad, or 2) He/she is playing/singing really poorly.
p.s. - there's nothing wrong with hippies, I just chose that particular group for their general mellowocity. DON'T HATE!
