Ok what is the big difference between Acoustic and Electric strings. Like say i was to put some Dunlop 10's or E.B. Super Slinkys on my acoustic how much of a tonal difference would there be?

they use different alloys for acoustic and electric strings. also acoustic strings are a bit on the heavier side than electric strings. slinkys on an acoustic sound thin, stringy and tinny. acoustic strings are more mellow and rich sounding. electrics thinner and brighter sounding. but it does work in a pinch.

ok. Im just trying to get the thinnest strings i can so i can play some of Zakk Wyldes acoustic songs like Stillborn and Spoke In The Wheel. Speaking of that, anyone have any tricks or advice for those songs?
