All of the above, with one or two other differences... the strings seem to pluck differently, so I'm thinking about changing from my standard pick for that guitar. Finding the right string at the right time with the pick is also different, but that may be one of the group of things the sitting vs. standing item actually represents. Now I am home for the weekend, and my dread playing seems to suffer a little from my getting used to the folk. I think I'll put astrap on it and try it standing....

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on Thursday

Greg, you've said you're a dread guy, as am I, so I'm curious as to what it is you're finding taking the most adjustment to get used to:?

1) The size of folk vs. dread

2) The perceived neck difference

3) Seated vs. standing playing

4) All of the above or something else different?

Comment by Greg Ballantyne on Wednesday

Alright time to come clean.... The S6 Folk does not have the narrow nut. Its the sitting down playing, and the resulting positioning affecting the plucking hand, throwing off the co-ordination between the plucking hand and fretting hand, etc....

 Bottom line - I'm getting used to it - starting to like it! Sat and played a mini-concert to no one except whatever apartment neighbors were listening through the walls.

Great find Martin. Love that song. That is actually very well played. 

Comment by Robert Williamson on March 22, 2015 at 4:05am

after that i ended up surfing about 20 videos :(

at 3:30 in the morning (was up with kid who woke up upset)

I didn't get a chance to retune   the Coastline at music store down a step before it sold.

Still on to do list..after my nodrive month is up

Comment by Martin van Dooremalen on March 21, 2015 at 2:06pm

A pair of Gulls playing nicely together or rather a guy nicely playing a pair of Gulls, an Original S6 and a Coastline S12. and they sound pretty good to boot.

Robert - is this the sound you're looking for in a twelve string?
