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 Guitar Mic Type and Positions

I've played around with a lot of different mic positions. The one that is the closest to what I hear when I'm playing a 12-string is spaced omni mics, one at the join of the neck, one at the tail, both rather close.

Maybe just because it's a giant jangle of different noises coming from all directions, but that's what I hear.

An example: Slow Blues in A
