jonm Bouzouki: octave or unison? (15) RE: Bouzouki: octave or unison? 02 Oct 08

Part of me has this urge to convert a 12-string guitar into a triple-strung bouzouki, with a single high octave string on the lower courses and a single low octave string on the higher ones.

With eight strings, unison every time for me, there are no strange jumps in fills and melody lines as you cross strings. I don't particularly like the wash of poorly-defined sound you get from a 12-string guitar, either.
