gauge is the thickness of a string. guitar strings that are a heavier gauge are thicker and more hard to bend then light gauge strings. .10's are generally considered around the light end, .11's and .12's are mid gauge, and anything from .13's and beyond are thick gauged.

I always use 8s. 10s arent really that heavy. There basically metals version of 9s.
11s are heavy.

I did, they felt pretty good, but I'd probably go with 12's in straight fourths.
