Musical Concept / Lessons (always under construction) 

_____________________Musical Concept: 

 

This is a system to play two guitars as one. 

 

In other words, it's like playing a new type of guitar when you play two of them simultaneously.

 

We have been working on creating a completely new instrument and it's own system of techniques.

 

Remember that you can still play like a regular guitar, but now you have all of these new options.

 

This is something that will always be under construction, since there are so many techniques / shapes / possibilities for these guitars.

 

We are in the process of publishing a complete new system with books, chord guides, etc. In the meanwhile, you can start exploring these concepts. Thanks for reading! Felix. 

____________________________Tips:

-Use the muting strips included with the guitars on the 2nd or 1st fret. This is optional, you can still play without them.

-We use the .08 set of strings from Ernie Ball (the blue package) Then .60 and .74 for the 7th and 8th strings. Feel free to use 09 sets as well, but we recommend keeping those gauges for the 7th and 8th. 

-For faster tuning when using the muting strips, tune by pressing the 5th fret while tuning with your other hand. (to avoid removing the muting strips every time you need to tune)
