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.

Lack of Posts

not because I'm not playing 12-string; more because I'm afraid of being read as an airhead. Too much tweaking, not enough composing.

For example, I was so sure about the "Finally, the Sound I've been Looking For". Turns out, meh, not so much. I'm vacillating between 2 and 3 steps down using Medium Elixirs. 2 steps down rings pretty nice, 3 steps is easier on the old hands.

Also gone is the notched saddle.

Spending a lot of time on relief and action. Low action sizzles some, but mostly sounds like crap. High action is clear, but hard to play. Funny how much sonic change there can be in .001 inch.
