Thread Name: 12 String Guitars - why?
Subject: RE: 12 String Guitars - why?
I'm convinced that the appeal of early Beatles music was that they simulated the sound of the 12-string with their electric instruments.

What do you think?

Keep in mind that it's one thing to have a sound like that on your stereo, where you can just turn it down if it bugs you. It's something else to be in a live situation (session, church) where somebody might be whacking away right into a sensitive ear.
