Here's a sound that you have probably heard but not been able to put your finger on as far as "what's that sound?". The 12 string electric guitar is a sound that many guitarists have experimented with and some have made it a regular part of the albums they'll release.

The sound is created by 6 string pairs. Think of it at playing 6 really big strings. Some think the strings are played seperately, but that isn't the way the guitar is set up. The pair of strings you pluck sound at once and gives the note a natural chorus effect that can't be done with a regular 6 string guitar. It's fun to play with and you should check it out.
