I'm without a doubt a high gain guy. The more gain and more effects and stuff I can play around with, the better! However, I've been gravitating towards my acoustics a lot more lately. Playing the same songs I normally do just to hear a more basic, stripped down version. I've been doing it for that reason, and also to build some finger strength and flexibility. I definitely sound less creative, a little boring, and repetitive because I'm playing an acoustic like an electric guitar for the most part, but I just value being able to play a song in the most basic way. If I can, I always play my acoustic before touching any of my other guitars in the morning.
