Acoustic Music

Acoustic music comprises music that solely or primarily uses instruments which produce sound through entirely acoustic means, as opposed to electric or electronic means. The retronym "acoustic music" appeared after the advent of electric instruments, such as the electric guitar, electric violin, kids acoustic guitar, electric organ and synthesizer.


Performers of acoustic music often increase the volume of their output using electronic amplifiers. However, these amplification devices remain separate from the amplified instrument and reproduce its natural sound accurately. Often a microphone is placed in front of an acoustic instrument which is then wired up to an amplifier.

Oh how I love the acoustic blues! Sometime in my life I was so inlove with this genre of music. Everyday of my college days, I never missed listening even to just one song. 

And now, every moment I am hearing one, it brings me to nostalgia.
