Thread Name: Twelve String Tuning
Subject: RE: Twelve String Tuning
I'll take a standard-tuned Guild. The low-tuned sound like wallowing in musical mud.

I like Leadbelly, though but no one plays it like him. He invented that sound.

The thing about the 12 is the fourth string G above the first string E. The octave match above the standard G that is. That's where the bright comes in.
