Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

what i do is go kill a creature, gut it, and rip out 6 veins and use those for strings.


I prefer the heavier gauge of Pulmonary arteries.

Elixer Nanoweb 10-46.
Expensive, but will last far longer than the slinkies

The gauge all depends on what tuning you're playing in though. The Elixir Anti Rust Nanowebs or Polywebs will last 5 time longer then any Ernie Ball strings. They feel a bit different at first, but they're easy to get use to. They're all I'm using anymore!

I'll go against the grain here and say GHS Boomers. I've played hundreds (yes, hundreds) of live shows, and never broke one. I only use GHS Boomers.


yes use these. 10x better than Ernie Ball. I did use Ernie Ball strings until I tried boomers. I also used Elixers for awhile. Boomers are the best period

You could buy any strings you'd like, but if this is the first time you change your strings the best gauge for you would be 10's or maybe 9's. What brand you buy is just your preference. To see what brand fits you buy strings from a different brand every time you change them and then see which you like best.

Some appreciated brands are D'addario, Ernie Ball, GHS and Elixr

I use either Fender or Ernie Ball, whatever I'm feeling more like.

I just don't like Elixirs, I can't get used to them!

Haha, I never said I used heavy strings. I use 9s and 10s. 8s are just so thin...
