today i got to thinking about my steel string. the 12 string guitar with 6 strings and covered in stickers. i got the guitar in 2007 from my aunt and uncle who were getting rid of some things. at first i thought nothing of it and i kept it as a decorative piece in the livingroom. in 2008 i started experimenting with the acoustic sound and it went from there. in 2008 i refurbished it to the best of my ability, which was a cleaning, new strings, bridge pins, and a strap. then i put stickers on it like on Beck's guitar, although not the same i recreated a few. i've expanded my steel string playing instead of classical. now i experiment with different tunings and a capo. i've named my guitar Heather. she means alot to me, afterall i've composed and recorded alot on her.
as you might wonder the unused tuners must rattle like crazy, so i strung a piece of old nylon string through all the tuners. :)
