look, i bought some new strings (daddario .010). just to replace my old SIT .009 and try something different.
so, i've put them on my guitar tuned and checked the intonation. everthing is perfect.
but still something is wrong, and i dont know why. for example, when i play just open E & A strings it sounds absolutely terrible.
there is also a riff (slipknot - gently) :
e-------------------------------
b-------------------------------
g-------------------------------
d-------------------------------
a-0-0-1-0-3----0-4-3-1-----
d-0-0-1-0-3----0-4-3-1-----

when i used my old .009 strings it sounded perfect. but now no more.
so, could somebody help me with that.
thank you very much!!

PS. sorry for my bad english.

bad tuning?

new strings are HORRIBLE with tuning.. give it a week for strings to break in and it should sound good

how long ago did you put these new strings on? because new strings always sound bad. try playing them for a while then see if theyre ok.

PS. i don't see anything wrong with your english!

Just stretch them in properly and give them some time.
You've read it, you can't un-read it!

Yup, got it down now.
Just needed a good tuner, and a little change to the intonation.
after a few days of playing, the sound got perfect.

thanks again.
