not that plan on doing it, but i always thought shredding, speed riffs, and tapping on a 12 string would at the very least sound different. if any band does let me know
I guess anythings possible, but it would be very difficult and probobly wouldn't soung good

My last pay check was £0 working 0 hours. I can't believe how easy it was
No one I know of uses that technique, but it can definitely be done. It would require a lot of practice but there's no reason it would be THAT difficult.
It's possible, but decently harder.
I have a 12-string acoustic
bending is damn near impossible, but tremolo picking isn't TOO hard
Requires a bit of extra practice though.
ive tried it. bending is mad hard and besides the stuff that isnt hard sounds like Sh*t

Oh man I'm well and truely on the point of no return then

****, there is a song by SRV where he "shreds" on a 12 string and plays the individual strings instead of 2 at a time, cant think of the name right now though.

Do you have to actively try to spell words that wrong or does it come naturally to you?

If you can define "shredding" as simply playing very fast, accurate riffs on the guitar, then this vid says yes, you can do it. Either way, he's tearing up those strings! Gotta love Roy Clarks version of Malaguena. Enjoy!
