You can but they are different kinds of guitars. This means that you will have to practice hard to be good at it. There are lots of people who play both of them. You can go to http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/playing-the-blues-guitar-acoustic-meets-electric.html for some tips.

Electric and acoustic share identical tuning and frets so as far as playing notes and chords they are the same, but because the electric guitar is hooked to an amplifier the strings can be quieter so they are often lighter and so at lower tension and easier to push down behind the fret for a clean note. if your fingers aren't strong learn on an electric.
