12-string songs
 
I was wondering if any of you could tell me some songs played on a 12-string acoustic.
Right now I can only think of Wish you were here-pink floyd
pride and joy - stevie ray vaughn
suicide note part 2 - pantera
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Jimi Hendrix. i don't know the song. Thats not much of a help, but...

Andreas Kisser of Sepultura plays a 12 string acousitic on "Kaiowas" the tribal song from Chaos AD.
It also happens to be a fucking awesome song:)

Trendkill_420 2004-06-07 07:36

Fuck I should have thought of kiowas.

andrewc 2004-06-07 08:01

I don't think the song you're thinking of is "Pride and Joy", I think you mean "Life by the drop"

uh....try the intro to "Refuse to be denied" by Anthrax? i don't know
i bet there's an assload of good guitarists that play 12 -string, we just don't em.

He plays "pride and joy" on a 12-string on the album "The Unplugged Collection, Volume One"

Parts of Dream Theater - Peruvian skies, is a 12-string. What kind of 12-string you got, I have a yamaha (forgot model) It was my first guitar.

guitar_demon 2004-06-09 20:32

the intro to in my darkest hour by megadeth
most of the acoustic parts on the gettysburg stuff by iced earth
opeth stuff cant think of anything specific though

A fender.

Does anybody know for sure whether Karl Sanders uses a 12-string at any point on "Saurian Meditation"?

Also, would Karl Sanders tabs be accepted on this site?

johnmansley 2005-05-07 03:25

I don't think he does. He said that he uses his old beat up 6-string for the majority of the album. He also uses the Baglama Saz which I think is a 5 string traditional Egyptian instrument similar to a sitar.

I'm not sure whether Saurian Meditation tabs would be allowed as it's essentially World/ethnic/ambient music. PM Nomad and I'm sure he'll clarify.

andrewc 2005-05-07 03:36

Well, it sounds hellishly like a 12-string, the tracks I've heard. I will PM Nomad.

johnmansley 2005-05-07 03:40

I think it's down to the weird tuning he uses. He posted what tuning it was in for Unas at the Nile boards about 6 months ago. I presume he keeps it in the same tuning for his other acoustic stuff.

andrewc 2005-05-07 03:47

Oh, no problem. Do you know what that tuning is?

johnmansley 2005-05-07 03:59

I can't remember but he did post it at the Nile forum after somebody asked.

Kylito 2005-05-07 04:48

There's that one gay Extreme song that has a good 12-string guitar on it and sounds great without Gay Cherone singing over it.

And the classic Led Zeppelin song "Over the Hills and Far Away"

That's not a 12-string, but it would probably sound good.

blizzard_beast 2005-05-07 04:59

It is a 12 string dude. The solo's aren't though. (I think)

I'll throw in some more:

Zakk Wylde - Sold my soul
Zakk Wylde - Throwin' it all away
Zakk Wylde - Evil Ways (not quite sure about this one)
