So I'm getting a twelve string acoustic tomorrow.
Could people please post some interesting songs
that are played on a twelve string (prefferably acoustic).

Sorry if its been asked before, i used the search bar and couldnt find anything.
If it gets big enough, which it probably wont, ill start a list

Thanks

more than a feeling and amanda - boston
i ain't no nice guy - motorhead feat. ozzy and slash

Here Comes The Sun - The Beatles (incredibly hard to play a song like that with a 12-string, since it's at capo 7, but that's what makes it fun!)
Lonely People - America (I like Jars of Clay's cover better though)
More Than A Feeling - Boston.. very fun song.
Epiphone Dot
DIY Esquire w/Neovin Power Rock pickup
Vox AC30VR 212
Arion MTE-1 (LED clipping diodes added)
Vox Tonelab LE
Roland SDE1000 delay

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

a **** ton of Opeth acoustic songs. i.e. Benighted, Patterns in the Ivy, Patterns in the Ivy II, Harvest, parts of The Drapery Falls, parts of Black Rose Immortal, parts of To Bid You Farewell, Still Day Beneath The Sun, Death Whispered a Lullaby, and parts of The Apostle in Triumph.

I don't know if you're a fan, but most of the Decemberists and Colin Meloy songs are played on a 12-string.

I was at a local record store last week, and there was some kid there, couldn't have been any older than 12 or 13, rocking out Over The Hills and Far Away on a 12 string. I mean absolutely flawless. I almost felt bad when I left. Here I am, twice his age, and I can't even get close to playing that song.

Thanks everyone that's replied


Also i have a question, the guitar didn't come with the octave string
for the G/3rd string or the 6th string i guess. What string should i use to replace it?
