    Excellent way to present how to tune. I have been avoiding a 12 string because everyone hates to tune them. Was in a high end guitar store yesterday and they advised to just tune it like a normal guitar. Thanks from Milwaukee

    one of the best explanations on tuning and alternate tunings i have found. Helps me to understand the complexities of the guitar more than many other instrument. Thx for the infomation.

    Hi there, great info, thanks.
    I have had a Sigma 12 string (well 11 string actually) and has been in a case for quite a few years and not played. I thought I would dig it out and change the strings. I purchased some decent Martin strings and have put them on and tuned up. All seems good….until I play a chord, basically the thinner string for example the top (higher) ‘A’ string becomes too high in pitch. The previous strings were fine, maybe I shouldn’t have changed them after all and just replaced the missing G string. Any ideas? Many thanks in advance. Steve
