Started on 9s, now play 10s. Can't stand 9s anymore

10s seem just right for me, I couldn't get any expression out of 9s and they seemed harder to control. I could barely tell if there was a high e under my finger or not!

11's. Nice tone and feel but i can still bend. Cant stand 9's but 10's are ok.

I use 8-38s. Jimmy uses them and i love um. Any one else use them? The reason i use them is because in order to play the 8 you have to develope a feel and i think it makes me better.

nothing like the first time you put 11's on an electric. it's kind of an "i can see the light" moment. SO much more tone than 9's or 10's. 12's are a bit too heavy for my taste unless i tune down, but they'd probably be a bit easier to handle on a guitar that has nice big frets unlike my piece of crap.

Pussies!

13-58s on the Strat.
11-52s on the Les Paul.
12-56s on the acoustic.

Will soon be changing my Strat (it's secondhand and losing tone...) into a slide-guitar... open-E all the time, 11-49s.


EDIT: oh, and *moved to guitar g&a*
Looking for my India/Django.

I love .08's, wouldnt have an electric without them. I can do so much more with them. All the good guitar players I personally know use .08's as well..

i use 10 guage
skinny top heavy bottoms!!!!
theyre the best strings ever, im actually surprised more people dont use them
the flexibilty and easy frettage (is that a word?) of size 10s, but with the thick tone of size 11s!
