So I've been trying larger and larger strings lately. I love the feel and tone. As I try larger strings I've enevitably came across threads about SRV. Some mention that he had played extremely large strings (one thread said he used like 18s which sounds wrong). Some of the threads talk about how he had to use lower gauge strings due to the stress on his hands. Is there a pont at which there is too much stress on your hands or do your hands adjust to additional tension much like weight lifters strengthen their muscles from training.
Over time you can get tendinitis more easily from thicker strings.
the more you play the stronger your finger muscles become, stop playing or play less you lose that strength, same for your callouses
Not The Callouses!! D:
