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.

12-string Interest Low But Steady

New toy alert, Google Trends.

Here's a comparison of searches for "12 string" or "12-string" compared to searches for "classical guitar" over the last few years:

Here the searches are broken down by country:

Nothing pops out particularly except that the Classical Guitar searches seem to be steadily declining despite a steady stream of news about the topic. The interest in the 12-string is steady despite a complete lack of news items. Seems like the guitar makers and performers should be pumping up the 12-string related press releases more.
