Sorry about the caps in the title, but I am going to lessons in less than 15 min and need to get new strings for my takamine acoustic/electric steel string guitar.

what are some good strings?

I had the plastic coated elixers and didn't really like them.

D'Addario Phosphor Bronze. They're fine strings.

My current top picks are John Pearse, though.

Unless they recommend steel strings. Which I (personally) loath.

I'd recommend staying away from coated strings. They sound dead to me.

What sort of strings would you recommend for a steel string guitar, then?

You can't put nylon strings on a steel string guitar, just as you can't put steel strings on a nylong string classical. Well, not that you can't, but you really, really shouldn't.

That's because they aren't coated. Coated strings sound dead and lifeless. Try to steer clear of them.

they were the exilers though. I liked the sound, but when I would play a chord that would require me to stretch vast distances, I would slip. thats my only gripe about coated strings. And when I went to fingerpick, i would also get some slipping.
