Thread Name: Anyone play a 'G String Guitar'???
Subject: RE: Anyone play a 'G String Guitar'???
I've seen it both ways. Octaves on the lower three and gG BB EE as stated above. Have played them both. Always seemed the worst of both worlds. There's a reason they've never really caught on to any extent.

When touring solo I take a six and a twelve as they voice the same songs completely different. Also, a mandolin and an autoharp, but that's a whole other thread.

As a cyclist I'd compare them to a hybrid...not quite a road bike and not quite an off-road bike. Slow on the pavement and dodgey in the dirt.
