1 wgnhim 2 weeks ago My apologies if this has been addressed somewhere else in this forum but, since I've looked and haven't found it elsewhere, here goes.I've been playing since the mid-50s, but the lion's share of my experience has been with 6 strings. I do have a 12 string Danelectro that I've done a little recording with, but I don't play it a lot. I recently purchased a 2018 Alvarez AJ80CE-12 from a friend who was downsizing his collection. This was a case of love at first strum. This is a REALLY nice guitar and I find myself playing it a lot ... or, at least, trying to. And this is a guitar that I want to play more. Yeah, I can do some of the basic 12 string riffs, but the more I play, the more I realize that I'm just missing some fingering "connection" with the additional 6 strings.Is this a normal thing after spending a lifetime in a 6 string world? Is it just a matter of "keep playing and it will get easier" or are there some tips that any of you might have that could help me speed up the transition? Actually, "transition" is probably the wrong word because I have no intention of abandoning my 6 string family, I just want to add a lot more 12 string to it.Anyhow, that's my story and if any of you have any thoughts, I'd love to hear them.Thanks!
