RECORDED SONGS


THE FIRST PART OF THIS PAGE is a bit technical and backgroundy, so if you feel yourself starting to glaze over, skip down to the interesting part.


OVER THE YEARS, many people have asked how I tune my twelve-string guitar ("How do you get that deep sound?"). Recently, even more have been enquiring about the string gauges I use.

Hopefully, this table will kill both birds with one stone. Trouble is, you won't find a C-tuning set available over the counter; you'll have to customise it, but I promise you that tuning your twelve-string down to "C" with these gauges is quite safe. You won't bow your neck!

Anyway, here's "Big Twelve's" tuning:

 
String
Course
Tuned to:
Gauge
12th 6th C (octave) .035 wound
11th 6th C .056 wound
10th 5th F (octave) .026 wound
9th 5th F .050 wound
8th 4th Bb (octave) .017 wound
7th 4th Bb .042 wound
6th 3rd Eb (octave) .013 (plain)
5th 3rd Eb .032 wound
4th 2nd G .020 (plain)
3rd 2nd G .020 (plain)
2nd 1st C .014 (plain)
1st 1st C .014 (plain)



BEAU/JOHN TREVOR, and some TREVOR MIDGLEY songs, have appeared on the following recordings. Unfortunately, many are no longer generally available. In the case of the 'mp3.com' CDs, this is due to company changes and licensing regulations. That said, if you'd like a copy, please
e-mail me and I'll see what I can do.

Oh, and lyrics to all my released songs are now available here at wikia.com. If you need any other sort of info., do let me know. I'd love to hear from you (particularly if you're a fellow twelve-string player!).
