The bajo sexto is nothing but a guitar that has twelve strings. In order to learn to play this musical instrument the best thing to do would be to find a music teacher in your vicinity that can teach you. This is because not only will a teacher be able to give you a live demonstration on how the guitar is to be played but the teacher will also be able to supervise you and correct any mistakes you may be making.

The strings on the bajo sexto are basically grouped in pairs and are known as 'courses'. The three pairs at the bottom are tuned to the octaves. The three pairs on the top are tuned in unison. Normally a bajo player would play just two notes of a particular chord. However in this case the strings are doubled so the player is actually playing four chords.
