Playing the twelve-string guitar is different from playing a six-string one.
Beyond the field it opens, this way of approaching the twelve-string guitar may win over those who find it tiring and are ready to give it up.
Playing the twelve-string guitar is physically demanding only if you play it the way you would play a six-string one (that makes demand on your left hand). As soon as you conform to its own logic, the instrument becomes accessible.
The goal of this method is to incite guitar players to approach this guitar — that is at the same time familiar and little known — in the right way.
This method is intended for musicians of all levels and of all styles.
Going from 6 to 12 strings playing does not involve any particular technical difficulty, but it does require a firm understanding of a new playing logic; with so many strings available the left hand is less needed for barring strings and the right hand takes on a more important role in melody.
Whatever your style of music, this method which is based on a couple of theoretical principles concerning the way the instrument works, will allow you to fully exploit the great potential of the twelve-string guitar and to take advantage of the broad range of technical possibilities it offers – and all this while keeping the quality of playing.
