Yeah sorry UG, another thread about strings. Bite me, biatch.

So, I'm really into *melodic* death metal myself, and I play in D standard all the time. However, I joined a band at school and they play in E standard. I only have one guitar, in case you asked yourself that.

What strings should I use to play in D most of the time, but to still be able to play in E?


Cheers.

Depedning on the scale length of the guitar, either 10's or 11's. The tension may be annoying at first, but it doesn't take a whole lot to get used to it and jumping back and forth doesn't take that much effort.

This is assuming of course that you're using a guitar with a fixed bridge.

12s, if you like fat strings.

.12s in E standard?

Are you aware of the fact that my neck's made of wood, not of some unbendable substance?
