My 2 cents, ,, Ill echo what Roger has said, get it set up real nice, biggest enhancement you can do for enjoyment. And yes you have to get used to the neck, but seeing as how I have a SG (with wider necks that they have) It hasn't effected me to much, my 12 is an Ovation so its actually a little less wide I think. Any way they are addictive, and remember when playing with others, ITS LOUDER. so watch your strumming lol Gordon Lightfoot is great for 12 string songs, and a great one to play that's easy is Copperhead Road (for when you wanna get rowdy) By Steve Eral. The song has a mandolin, but if you play the 12, it covers and sounds almost the same, and you can get down on it! LOL Of course Mother and Comfortably Numb from Pink Floyd are great ones as well as Blaze of glory by Bonjovi. One other trick btw, Tune 1/2 step down, and Capo the first fret. OR you can tune a whole step down and Capo the second fret (Yea I think thats right, someone correct me if im wrong) OH an look for a 12 string Capo. like this http://www.musiciansfriend.com/capos/sh … ductDetail
Music is a tribal experience, and it is about connection. Figure out how to reach in and change their emotions. Learn how to put them in a mood. That’s what music is for.”-JH.

Its the little mistakes that become great. and when it falls in place, the feeling is indescribable.
