I have a set of 11-48 12string i have never strung a 12string guitar before.can you tell me what string goes in what hole? 48 40 30 26 20 16 14 14 12 11 11 9


the Heaviest string of each string pair is placed at the top (closest to your nose). In fact, if you look at the nut, (the notched thingy that spaces and holds the strings at the right spacing up by the tuning pegs) the notches in nut are wider than the paired string for this reason. That may not be true on all 12 strings but it is on mine. So the typical arrangement is heavy string, matching string. Heavy String, matching string. Except on the bottom 3 pairs where the actual string thickness can be the same. One caution note here....when tuning a 12 string, tune it a whole step lower. So rather than tuning it at EADGBE, tune it at DGCFAD then use a capo on the 2nd fret to bring the tuning up to EADGBE.
The reason for tuning a whole step lower is because on the top 3 pairs of strings you normally tune the thinner string an octave higher to give that 12 string sound. So if you start tuning at EADGBE, those thinner strings for the top EAD strings are going to be pretty tight and they will snap. So much safer to tune a whole step lower and just use a capo!!! Good Luck

the ACMP function doesnt work when I play, even tho it says it is on in the display window


Check you have selected 'sync start'. The ACMP selection activates the automatic chords but not the rhythm, so each note produces a droning chord. Sync start activates the automatic chords and rhythm you have selected when you play anywhere near the bottom end of the keyboard. Alternatively you can manually press play to start the drums by themselves and then the chords will begin the moment to play with your left hand.

can I hit one key to play a chord and how do I do it


It depends exactly on the model of keyboard you have but in short look for the accompaniment button normally on the left hand side. With this pressed you can then get 1 finger chords in the left hand ( 2 fingers will give minor or 7th options ) check your handbook

If you can find the C-below-middle-C ?

Put your small finger on C,
your next finger on the next white key: D,
your middle finger on the next white key: E
your index finger on the next white key: F
your thumb on the next white key: G

Lift your fingers away from D and F -- to keep this simple -- all we did was identify the D and E and F and G keys, relative to the C key.

Press C and E and G (small, middle, thumb)
to play a "major" chord in C.

Move your fingers "up":
C to D, E to F-sharp, G to A,
and play a "major" chord in D.

Move your fingers "up":
D to D-sharp, F-sharp to G, and A to A-sharp,
and play the chord in D-sharp (usually called 'E-flat').

Move your fingers "up":
D-sharp to F, G to A, and A-sharp to C,
and play the chord in F.

Move your fingers "up",
F to G, A to B, and C to D,
and play the chord in G.

Go back to the starting position (C-E-G),
and move "down": C to B-flat, E to D, and G to F,
and play the chord in B-flat.

So far, you have C-major, D-major, E-flat-major, F-major, G-major, and B-flat-major.

There are more chords, but most pop-music is in one of these keys.

Give it a try.

A lot of left-hand stuff is just the small-finger and thumb, omitting the middle finger, e.g., C&G,
to avoid a too "muddy" sound.

Or, "stretch" your hand: C-and-G-and-the-next-higher-C.

i want to learn how to play my guitar. what


A good guitar teacher is a MUST !
Prices vary but around $25 per half hour seems average.

Join the school band if you are still in school.

There is a mass of learning stuff on the INTERNET and different people take to different methods so there is no fixed way to learn.

My son plugs his MP3 player into his amp as well and plays along using a
"play by ear method" He also has lessons and is in the school band.

Supportive parents are the biggest asset you can have. That support should extend into helping you find ways of earning that may suit you better than trying to read from a music book

A lot of people learn by playing TABS in which you learn basic notes quickly and pretty easily. Maybe take some different types of learning books from the library until you find one that works for you.
Hope this gives you the information you need
