Ever notice how fond of 12 strings Brian seems to be? Does anybody know what acoustic songs he DOESN'T use a 12 string guitar on?

And I count Crazy Little Thing Called Love as a telecaster with no distortion.

'Crazy Little Thing' does have 12-string live until Knebworth.

There are several songs in the studio usng 6-string acoustics: 'Love Of My Life', 'Prophet's Song', 'Jealousy', 'I Want It All', the entire debut album...

Otoh 'Is This The World' was recorded with 12-string but performed live on a 6-string.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

When you first play a 12 string try to tune it 1 or 2 semitones lower. So you don't have to press so hard. Ofcourse you can't play along normally with songs but it will help you practice

'39 live at Hyde Park 1976 is played with a 6-string instead of the regular 12-string. My guess is that Brian used the 6-string only on the short Summer Tour '76 for that particular song.
