Pro tip: If you drink scotch whilst playing your 6er, your vision may double. This will give you the feeling of playing a 12 stringer, including the enormous headache when you try to tune the sucker.

Baldguitardude this is the best tip I have heard for years the scotch also seems to improve the singing and hearing !

Hi everyone sorry haven`t  posted on the forum for ages never seem to get time to get onto my computer ! I have been playing around for a couple of years on my acoustic can manage to knock out a few tunes , I have just acquired a 12 string was wondering if there was a way to adapt to a 12 string or is it the same old story of plenty of practice .
thanks

its hard to believe its half a century plus since The Beatles not only changed the music scene but our way of life as well , i know there are many milestones in musical history but to me the Beatles had a big influence in so many ways. One of my earliest memories was hiding behind the sofa with my ancient transistor radio listening to radio luxemberg ( pirate radio station ) waiting for the first play of their new single  think it was Lady Madonna , can`t be sure though , and hoping they would play it before i had to go to bed ! The good old days !!

If you want to hear the song exactly as it is, buy the CD or listen to it in the radio.

Think that hits the nail right on the head , also some other comments about if your just playing for yourself it doesn`t really matter how accurate you play the song long as it sounds good to you , thanks everyone .

I have been playing wonderwall by oasis for a while , quite a straightforward song to play , i can get the strumming right ( that is sounds the same as the original ) but when i start too sing i can`t help changing the strumming pattern , it sounds o.k. but do you think it matters that its not quite the same as it should be .
