What acoustic strings would i get if i was after less tension?
Less tension? I think they're pretty much all the same tension (except for nylons of course).
lighter gauge strings exert less tension. so, something lighter. i wouldn't go with anything lighter than 12s on an acoustic though.
11s are okay too. Definietly nothing less though.
Haha, only my 12-string has .11s on it, and thats for entirely different reasons...my other guitars have .13s.
hahaha, i was just messing with you. i actually have 10s on my 12 string guitars.
They make "Silk and Steel" strings that I assume would be less tension. Check 'em out: http://www.daddario.com/DADProdDetail.aspx?CodaID=6908&ID=2&Class=ABRA. Of course, the lighter you go the quieter it will be. Might be good, might not.
