Acoustic G3

#1 Post by spanishphrygian » Mon Mar 10, 2008 5:45 pm

I read an interview with Joe Satriani where he said that he would like to play acoustic guitar for a year. I think that would be so cool.

I wonder if anyone in here would go for an Acoustic G3 or even a set in G3 that is all acoustic?

Then, who would the 3rd man be? I would go for Paco de Lucia or Tomatito myself. Who would you go for if you like the idea of AG3?

Please let me know if you like the idea of AG3 why or why not. Then if you like it who would be the #3.

Other ideas are welcome too like G3 with live whales microphoned or anything!

That would be very interesting.

A cool #3 would be Al Di Meola.

Seeing Vai perform All About Eve again would be awesome too, especially if he does it with the violin accompaniment that he had on the last tour.

Nah, much as I'm sure Joe is capable on an acoustic, he's an electric guitarist first and foremost, and I wouldn't like to see him to an acoustic G3. If you think about it, and acoustic G3 has already been done, with the Al Di Meola, Paco De Lucia and John McLoughlin concerts.

I remember seeing Joe and SRV at the MTV unplugged and it was just too apparent who was the more comfortable on the acoustic there lol.

Besides, I'm not all that fond of acoustic playing in the first place.

i like acoustic playing, but a whole g3 dedicated to acoustic is too much.. a song here and there is fine.. but, for me, the whole point of the g3 is to have off the planet solos and sounds coming from electric guitars :P

There are so many incredible acoustic guitar players out there, I'm not sure an acoustic G3 could add anything to the genre.

I wouldn't mind it, I've got 3 g3 dvd's of just loud and crazy rip it up guitar, it would be nice to have something a bit more relaxed. It would be interesting to see what they choose to do in the jam section too. Good opportunity to get tommy emmanuel involved, I know steve would be up for that.

I do like acoustic guitar but, no. Not the whole show. Them boys are far too great on the electric.

I thought Paul Gilbert did a great job on the 'Acoustic Samurai' album.

As for an acoustic G3, it might be a little 'superfluous' - sure, I'd definitely go check it out, and it'd still no doubt be awesome, but it's kinda been done before (albeit it in a different musical style) by John McLaughlin / Al Di Meola / Paco de Lucia. If there was one, it'd be interesting to see what songs they picked for the G3 jam at the end though

Sharon Isbin played with Steve before, so she could be an appropiate one for AG3.

I think that could be interesting to see It from time to time or even once time to check the audience's answer to this shows.

I would propose Steve Howe, Pierre Bensusan, Paco de Lucia or Niño Josele. Would be very interesting to see this kind of G3 Jam.

That would definitely be interesting.

I would see Erik Mongrain as the 3rd G :

My thoughts exactly..


An acoustic G3 show would be beautiful and amazing. I don't think I would care who was in the line up as long as it was done right.
