View Full Version : Easier To Play Than Acoustic
I know there is a difference in playing an acoustic guitar versus and electric guitar as far as pressure placed on a string to produce a sound, the electric guitar being "easier" to play.
Does the same difference exist between electric mandolin, and acoustic mandolin?
Thanks in advance.
I think it is. It's much easier to vary the sound on the electric than on the acoustic. Picking pressure doesn't feel that much different for me.
thanks for your reply. Much appreciated. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
When I go from playing acoustic for a while back to the electric, I have to remain conscious to lighten up a lot of the pressure on the strings, the response is much more sensitive. But great for bending notes...twang!http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif
