12-String Songs

What are some songs that are actually played on 12-string guitars in the recording? I just want some examples, it's not really going to dictate what I play. Thanks.

Yeah "Wish You Were Here" is one of my favorites. Hm, I'm not sure but I think the intro to "Knockin on Heavens door" by Guns N Roses was recorded on a 12, or maybe Slash just plays it live on his 12. Not sure. I know it sounds wickedly cool when I play it on a 12 string though...

Isn't complaining about that just and not talking about the topic raising your post count too?

All I can think of is Hotel California that's already been said, either way, 12-strings are kick@$$.

Well that's your excuse anyway Bow.

Love of my Life by Queen is played on a 12 string and it's a beautiful song too.

lol,,,,nice work nOOb



To thread starter, if your starting to play around on a 12 string, try all the songs you already know.
In many cases I've wondered why some songs werent recorded on a 12 in the first place.

at least the begining to more than a feeling is recorded with a 12 string. I also believe that tangerine by zeppelin is played (at least some of it is) on a 12 string.

I thought of another. Hard Luck Woman by KISS, but I'm not 100% sure on that. It sounds like it though.

Don't really know any songs that are played on 12 strings but I play most stuff on my 12 as I'm too lazy to buy new strings for my 6.
