Tips, Techniques, Examples about my favorite musical instrument, the Twelve-String Guitar.

If you play guitar check out Playing Technique, or Strings / Setup. There are also some interesting posts about guitars at, you guessed it, Guitars.

If you want to spread your musical talents around, you will find some good info at Recording.

Marketing - meh - I'm probably the world's best bad example. Although you could find funny stuff there.

I've made some music videos through the years, and you can find them and other interesting music at Music I Like, Music I Play.

Finger Crutch

What can I say? Some people need mechanical aids.

I can't stop my pinkie from straightening out while playing difficult passages, but this device seems to work. It's a tiny section of bicycle inner-tube that fits over the tip of the pinkie, and it is stapled to a strip of Velcro. I don't know if I can ever play correctly without it, but I can feel that I'm using different muscles and it is a little tiring at first.

Arthur Sulger, you are SO good! Knowing you for longer than anyone else, I feel I can say "I knew of your abilities long before you did!"
Keep soaring!
