Your Thursday Moment of Words Fail Me: Special "Book 'em, Dano" Edition

Twelve great 12-string guitar songs that everyone forgets. AKA the missing link between Jackie DeShannon and U2.

That is, unquestionably, the greatest thing in the history of things. Kudos to Brit guitarist Dylan Pank, the guy playing all that stuff in the video.

I should add that I own the same Danelectro seen in that clip, which sells for next to nothing as these things go (around $350), sounds great (as you can hear), and is far easier to play than a vastly more expensive Rickenbacker.

We -- by which I mean The Floor Models -- used it on this little ditty from last year.
