Re: Practicing unplugged electric guitar.

I think it always a benefit whenever one picks up the guitar to play. unplugged, amped, either way, you are engaged with the instrument and that's when learning and enjoyment happen. Typically, I have an electric lying around. when the mood strikes, I grab it and play unplugged. 8)
