A Rogue's Gallery of Songs for the 12 String

In the hands of a master, the 12-string guitar can sing in a variety of voices, many of which are demonstrated here. As Gordon says, "play it like a backhoe and it sounds like Old Fat Boat; play Carolan's Concerto on it and it sounds like a clairseach." This recording was made over a period of two years using guitars built by Nick Apollonio, one called Adrian Primero, strung with medium gauge D'Angelico strings , and the other called Little John, strung with fire tower cable and towing wire.

This album can be ordered through Folk-Legacy Records here.
