i was just wondering if its harder to play legato with thinner strings...
i can do it on my guitar, but i cant do it on my friends guitar. the strings are a different gauge as mine are 0.11s and his are thinner.
is it actually the string gauge or a different factor?

No endeavour rivals science in its incremental progress towards a more complete understanding of the observable universe.
It may be because his action is not as low as yours. I am thinking it was just a difference in the action.
