ok ive recently gotten into playing pink floyd music. (ive been listening to them for a while though) and i play tele. what strings would be suggested that allow for maximum bending w/out breaking. and also that will not tear off all the skin of my fingers. i tried the ghs boomers, they are ripping my fingers to shreads, doin the 2, 2 1/2 step bends.
get ernie ball super slinky strings, they don't break too much and are excellent for bending.
make sure o ydont' have any burrs in the saddle nut string posts and trees. (s are easiest to bend with. Also try DR tite wound strings. They work really well.
