I disagree with that, electrics' fairly simple really. Just a couple scales bends and solo's is all they're used for, they often don't give the depth of acoustics. A couple of scales really and your away with electric, then just pick up the speed.
Having said that, there's nothing that really differs electric guitars from acoustic - apart from the sound. If you want to make noise you get an electric, if you want to make music, you get an acoustic Me? I've like both Though I much prefer acoustic.
I use an electric-acoustic (Black 'Washburn') guitar personally, and the action on it is the best I've ever seen for an acoustic guitar (it's just as easy to solo on compared to my Fender Strat electric )...
Anyway, I want to get a (Steve Vai) Ibanez Euphoria (the wooden one not the green ), love that guitar.
I play two electrics, an epiphone sheraton II and a cheap squier strat. I agree with Nioreh tho, playing acoustic is more fun unless you have slave monkeys for drums n bass. I mainly play my martin d28 and washburn 12string.
I've got a Gibson SG and some steel strung acoustic I picked up in Spain. Don't play as much as I used to, I dropped out the band and didn't really see much point in the guitar then. Few years later they're called The Children, practicing with Paul Weller and are on the verge of getting a proper record deal if memory serves. Lucky sods! Some guy at uni handed me the Dogtantian theme guitar tab so I absolutely kick started on the guitar again
