GUEST,The Vulgar Boatman 12 string (22) RE: Tech: 12 string 01 Aug 06

Hence the "honky-tonk" piano, which was presumably originally simply out of tune, but then deliberately produced by creating an exaggerated beat in the treble strings. Russ Conway's tuner did this for the characteristic sound on his recordings. It's also why the Hohner Wall of Sound makes the noise it does. And yes, you can do it onb a 12 string. Get hold of a recording of Pete Seeger playing "Bells of Rhymney" and you'll hear the effect.
