Hi ...

I have never played a 12 string ...would like to know a few basic things about one ....are the chord shapes the same ....how are the strings tuned ?
I do believe the chord shapes are exactly the same...but doubled.
The standard tuning is: EE AA DD GG BB ee as far as I know.
Axe FX 2
Matrix GT1000FX
Mesa 4x12
Behringer FCB1010
You Play A 12 String The Same Way You Play A 6 String DUH. No difference in how you play it but it sounds as cool as hell.
The Tuning listed above is correct but note the 4 Lower strings (EADG) are tuned an octave apart and the high B & E are tuned in unison.
