Thread Name: 12 String Guitars - why?
Subject: RE: 12 String Guitars - why?
More noise, more internal harmonies on each chord (well, repeats of existing harmonies). It's important to me that the bass strings are not overwhelmed by the octaves and trebles, but happily that is the case on my Mugen THE78-12. If you are playing internal melodies within the chords, they have the double-stopped quality of Noel Redding's bass work on the Hagstrom 8-string bass with Hendrix - or if you prefer, of an octave mandola although the chord inversions are different.
