    Thank you, homie. I'm trying to make this solo thing work so I figured I could take it to the 7String cats and see what this scene thinks about it.

    Sounds cool dude. When you say 12 string is it 12 single course or 6 dual course?

    She is. She's a very sassy lady. I play my 4 string WAY more often but this was the first song off of the upcoming EP. I will also have a new 8 string and a new 18 string (triple course 6 string) by the time I start recording the Album =)

    Glad you dig my bass. The track is done in only one take and all the effect work is controlled by feet =)
    Hope you dig that too

    Oh, I follow anyone who follows me and anyone attached to some sort of social media. My super space phone does all of that. It also lets me know who's got new music up so I get to listen to new music all day long, pretty much non stop =)

    I don't know how many times I've listened to this track now - several dozens of times probably.

    It just rocks.

    That's all.

    Cool stuff! Is that the same 12 string you've always had? For some reason I thought I saw a video of you with a different one.

    How are the triple courses tuned in the 18 string you're having made? That sounds awesome.

    I didn't own the other one. The one from the video that you're talking about was me playing a Prat at the NAMM show. It inspired me to get one and work on playing one. I didn't even own a bass at the time, which is funny.

    The 18 String is a triple course 6 String tuned:
    Eee, Aaa, Ddd, Ggg, Ccc, Fff
    Here's a link to the album for it.

    I am doing the top two in unison. I do plan on doing a lot of tuning variations and a WHOLE lot of cap work.

    In my natural playing, I don't use much open notes for my technique work and I realized that I would like to try and right a lot of tunes with focus on open style playing. This is going to be the instrument to do so with
