Hmm, all my life I seem to have misunderstood the meaning of
Do you think the ones named are all of them? There ARE plenty of solo electric players Do a little searching on your own and you'll find as many as you want.
Yeah, sure. One of those Squier guitars strung with 9s played through a little Behringer amp is just the thing for would-be Wes Montgomerys and Chet Atkinses to get going with. What's the bet that Chet started out with an electric?
I know all about solo electric players. I was probably listening to those guys before you were born. The point is, how many of these Squier- with-9s guys are going to end up playing anything anyone else could stand listening to? Not "plenty."
I don't give a crap what anyone does, and if people get their jollies from playing little chunks of songs and half riffs on their crappy electrics in their basements, all power to them.
I'm talking about people who would actually like to get to be able to play guitar that would entertain other people. Acoustic is the way for them to start. That's my opinion, based on my experience.
