I have been playing for about a year and am really enjoying it but after playing a friends guitar noticed how different his strings were.

When playing mien my strings feel quite sharp, heavy and thick and I need to push down quite hard to make then sound out right. I had the action lowered and neck tighted which made a difference but my friends still feel lighter, softer and easier to play.

I have strings made by Martin and they are light. Could I be having this problem because my strings are on the cheap side. Can anyone recommend good strings to buy.

Many Thanks

String brand really doesn't make a difference. Just get a lighter gauge.
I'm that dude with the fro.
