I'm a lefty ragtime picker and came across a 12 on ebay so I just had to get it. it's a Daon (rebadged Yamaki).Got a great sound but I think the trebles are a bit thin.
Now I had an LP of Mississippi John Hurt. the photo showed him holding a 12 string and the unusual thing is the trebles had a wire wound string like the bass's. this would give a richer sound to the thin end. but what string could it be? They were strung opposite of the bass's.
I suspect the E would be an extra light wire wound and the B might be
an extra light A wire wound. I dunno, any clues anyone before I file a bigger slot?.But aint it easy to play a six after playing a 12?
MJM's Casey Jones goes real well on a 12 by the way.
Leo Kotke plays some kind of open tuning
