mthompso 12 string tuning (14) 12 string tuning 04 Jan 00

I have been playing 12 string for over 20 years now. From time to time I have heard people say that you shouldn't tune thme up to pitch, puts too much strain on the instrument. Instead, tune it 1/2 to a whole note lower and capo up when playing with other instruments.

I have never had any problem with stnadard tunings on the 12 string. Anyone have some thoughts on this?
