The Chorded 12-Key is our most popular instrument and one of our most musically versatile. This tuning features four chords: C, F, G, and A minor, or a I - IV - V - vi chord progression in the key of C. The instrument is well-suited to be played with hands or mallets, freestyle or to the tune of a favorite song. If it’s songs you’re after, you may know that the I - IV - V - vi chord progression is one of the most common in popular music of the last 50 or 60 years, across all genres.
