hanrahan Twelve-String Guitars (104* d) RE: TWELVE-STRING GUITARS 20 Apr 98


I have played a Martin 12 since 1971 and most of the time it was tuned in standard...EE AA DD GG BB EE.. sometimes using DaDGAD and DADFAD..it has never had a neck problem.. I find lower tunings desirable when playing pieces that use a lot of string bending. I have the Keyser 12 capo but it is, in my humble opinion inferior to the Schubb..Paul Stookey said he puts a small piece of wood above the capoed fret to get a real clean tone. Gordon Bok has a wonderful cd of 12 string music...he often tunes down to C..
