Re: still goin clean

>>  Maybe someday just guitar and edp, who knows?

Since moving to a new town (Evergreen, Co.) and getting involved in the 
local music scene (mostly through the extensive open mic circuit in the 
Denver area), it's been a necessity to scale things down and travel 
light.  Been using just an acoustic archtop guitar and << volume pedal 
to DD20 to RC20xl >> setup to good effect.  One benefit of this 
streamlined, lack of outboard effects setup, is that it forces you to 
really explore the various "natural" sounds (musical and non musical) 
that you can get from just an acoustic guitar.  It's a lot more 
intimate and seems to draw people in more.  Liking it more, now (old 
age factor?), than playing "electric".  Although, when you strap on the 
electric and get that distortion driven, effects laden, wall of sound 
thing going ... man that's nice :).
PS: any tips/ links to info on "processed acoustic guitar"?  I've seen 
players using all sorts of alligator clips and doodads attached to 
strings to get different sounds but not clear on the actual process....
