Thread Name: Twelve String Tuning
Subject: RE: Twelve String Tuning
My 12 was built by John Slaughter in San Diego, and for years I kept it tuned in standard pitch.Until the tuning head let go in the Redding heat in my Suburban.
Now it stays tuned down one full step with heavier strings as 'Spaw said.
For open tunings I( and the guitar) love open D.In this case C. CGCEGC.The guitar is a triple-O size and in an open tuning really resonates.I have come to regard a capo as an essential tool in my guitar playing and use it a lot.
