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.

Unison courses in a 12-string guitar

In addition to the Rickenbacker Trick on swapping high and low strings in some of the octave pairs, I've been playing with unison strings on everything but the middle two pairs.  So, for a 12-string guitar in standard tuning, here's what the pairs look like starting at the first, highest pair. Note that small letters are an octave higher than capital letters:

e e  
b b
g G
d D
