Some Gibson 12 String Picking

Recommended Posts

I went to record my Gibson J45 through my Pod HD>Imac as mentioned in another thread, but I got waylaid by my 1964 Gibson B25-12N!

 

 

Here is a blues fingerpicking track I recorded through the amp modeller with a model of a Vox AC15 with leslie effect and spring reverb - imitation Beatles sound but possibly nothing like it! But I had fun....

Thanks guys...

 

 

The photo is a bit blurry - didn't want to use a flash - and I should have taken my photo at the same time because the blurring in the photo hides the cracks, scratches and age marks!

 

 

As for 12 stringer bending, well I did cheat a leeeetle bit by having the guitar tuned down 2 steps. Luthier said it will spontaneouly combust in Gibson fashion if I tune to standard. I don't think I want to do those bends again just yet though.

 

 

So I should have called it "Cee Cee" instead of "DeeDee" because it is in a dropped D tuning style but the guitar was tuned down a whole tone before I tuned the 2 Sixth strings down another whole tone - now sounds like Dropped C.
