A recent study shows that 92% of all teenagers have moved on to rap music. Put this in your profile if you are one of the 8% who stayed with the real music

but is it even worth gettting, can u really pick? (as in picking with the plastic thing not choosign the guitar)

Seeing as you'd probably use a 12-String more for chord strumming, yes you can use a pick.

4 string, thats probly one of the funniest moments on futurama

thank you

but some might not like the feel of doubled strings, like myself.

What I don't get is how the strings are differnt. E-A-D-G-B-e...and what else? Are the extra strings a different gauge somewhere between the 6 on a 6-string? Do you see waht I am asking?

Just for those of you who don't know most twelve strings have a second string next to a regular string, in sets of 2, with just enough distance between the two so they can still ring, tuned to the same note as the normal string, only an octave higher or lower depending on customization. You can also tune both strings to the same tune to give them a chorus effect. Picking individual strings is hard, but not impossible. To the threadstarter a dumbass hick friend of mine answered the question by saying "Dey sound purty."

yer, E, A, D and G strings, the little string is an ocave higher, and for the b and e, the doubled strings are the same.

12 strings sound sooooooo good when tuned to dadgad (i think thats open d, but i forget)
