A Guide to 12 Acoustic Guitar-Based Tracks on The Beatles' 'White Album'
From the earliest days, the Beatles prominently featured the acoustic guitar on their recordings.Whether used as a rhythm instrument ("Love Me Do," "P.S. I Love You," "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away") or in a more ambitious context ("And I Love Her," "Michelle," "Norwegian Wood"), the acoustic was always an integral and interesting part of the group's sound.But on The Beatles, the 1968 double album universally known as the "White Album," the band elevated the acoustic guitar to an even higher plane. In addition to such bona fide acoustic masterpieces as "Blackbird" and "Julia," the record features a whole slew of songs that contain no electric guitar whatsoever.http://www.guitarworld.com/guide-12-acoustic-guitar-based-tracks-beatles-white-album
