The only problem with back tracks (based on the ones I’ve heard) is that they’re pretty obviously back tracks and it takes away from the sound of the guitar. A lone guitar might sound a little sparse, but it’s still very beautiful. Is there any chance you could do a “test run” with your friend in the venue to see what the acoustics are like?

My brother in law played guitar at our wedding. We had no complaints about the “fullness” — he’s a jazz guitarist, so it all was very lovely. It gave the ceremony a very intimate feel.

We’re having just acoustic guitar – I was worried about it not being full enough, but I really love the simplicity of just guitar.  We’re getting married in a courtyard garden with walls on all sides, so the sound should bounce off just fine.

We are having a guitar too.  Even though he is going to play acoustic he should still be amped.  Plug in with a speaker.  It will make it carry through the garden.

We are currently looking for an acoustic guitar player for our ceremony and cocktail hour. I love the sound of an acoustic guitar on its own.
