A fine example of a great song which uses the acoustic guitar to good effect.
A guitar which isn’t plugged into an amp, basically. The body of the acoustic guitar acts as a sounding board and an amplification chamber - as do the bodies of all acoustic stringed instruments. The sound is produced by the strings and the "wooden" and hollow nature of the instrument's body - a good example is "Wonderwall" by Oasis. Playing "Unplugged" is seen as going back to basics and has seen a bit of resurgence in recent years.
Electronic devices that are used to increase the volume of sound. In live performance amplifiers are used for guitars, vocals, keyboards, and any instrument that can be miked (linked to a microphone). The stuff that bands use is, in principle, identical to your average home Hi Fi, just a lot more powerful (and expensive).
