I'm thinking about buying a 12 string acoustic guitar but firstly I was wondering if anyone could recommend some songs/instrumentals that can be played using a 12 string acoustic. Haha, all I've got so far is John Butler. So song title and artist is most appreciated and maybe a MySpace/YouTube link would be most appreciated.
Thanks dudes.

Over the Hills and Far Away - Led Zep

This song on a 12 string is as close to a religous experience as you can get without being in a church

Dream Theater - The Silent Man
Zakk Wylde - Sold my Soul, Throwin it all Away

Dont be limited to only songs recorded with a 12 string. Some of my favourite songs to play on my 12 string are ones that originally recorded with a 6 string guitar.

Good lord. You are amazing.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

Matt Nathanson- Little Victories


Almost every Matt Nathanson (maybe even every, period) is played with a twelve string. He's a pretty good pop-ish artist. My favorite song of his is Weight of it All.
