So lately the strings on my ibanez rgr321ex strings have started to wear out a bit which is kinda obvious (afterall there stock strings which have been there for 2 years =P) i kinda loved the strings it came with which i think is d'addario guage 10's however i was wondering if it was good idea to go with dean markley guages 10's - Any opinions and suggestions?

Also if anybody cna give me tips or vidoes on how to accatly replace strings that would be great cause i kinda have a fear something would go wrong if i do it =S.

EDIT : i play the typical noobish metal and pop-punk but i also like to play classic rock, blues and jazz when i feel like it.

There was a post, I believe, about different string sizes and what they were best used for...
The gist of it states something like this:

10 guage strings were best used for rhythm guitar work
009 guage strings were more suited for lead work.

I don't know where it was, but I do know it was a UG post.

hope this helps. =/

Oh yea! I almost forgot! there are vids on youtube that emphasize on string-change instruction, as well.

Belief is a beautiful armour but makes for the heaviest sword.

What tuning you play in? .10 works for standard or Drop D but you might want to go bigger if you're playing rhythm or tune lower.

10s would work fine but you might even like 11s. It makes drop D or drop C# sound more clear and it won't be too heavy in standard, if you don't bend that much. Although, I could still play Hot For Teacher on my friends guitar with 11s.
