I use D addario lights on my electric. My Acoustic is pretty new but it is time for some new strings. Any suggestions on what works well and what hasn't for acoustic.

Elixr gives me the best tone and feel of any strings out there. I strongly recommend them.

I hate elixer, but if you aren't gonna change your strings very often, they are your best bet. The best strings are the Martin marquis lights. They have the phosphor bronze action, that gives nice highs and lows.

try martin silk and steels, the bass strings are wound with silk so they bend very easily, and i believe the treble strings are lighter gauged than most others.

I've been playing 5 years, and have pretty much settled on these.

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

Elixirs are very much love or hate. Try them for yourself. For me, they don't last the extended period of time that they promise since my hands kill strings, so it just couldn't use them. They cost quite a bit of money, so i figured... why pay $20 for 1 pack of elixirs when I can buy 3 packs of Martins or D'addarios for less? They last the same amount of time for me.

You know, you go to the store, play some guitars, find one that feels good, sounds good, and then you buy it.
If you like the way it sounds, I would find out what strings it came with from the factory, and start there.
So, start with what has been working best to your ears. Use that as a reference point, and then you can tweak your guitar sound from there.

Inexpensive? It's 3x more expensive than Martin SPs or D'Addarios.

My favourite strings right now are actually the Eric Clapton signature Martins. They're pretty good. I have it on my Martin right now.
