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.

Ok, I give up - I can't get a good tone out of a 12-string using the classical right hand position. It occurred to me that Lute players deal with lots of doubled strings. I'm trying it. Seems to offer more control over dynamics and timbre. 

Here's my latest effort emphasizing good tone, tempo, and dynamics, the Allemande from a Bach Lute Suite,  BWV 996.
