A lot of good replies & suggestions. Gary, congrats that your strings last you such a long time.
Me, I recently changed over from lights to mediums mainly because of the feel. I would like to play
like David Bromberg, bending the strings like he does. So i always kept light gauge strings on at
least one of my gtrs. But it looks like I just don't play like that nor am i much of a fingerpicker.
So it seems like I like medium gauge for the stuff I've been playing (mostly originals), just for
You might experience a slight change in the neck due to the different tensions of the lighter gauge
Enjoy your experiment. I suggest everyone have at least 2 guitars. :)
Btw, i have for sale a Bozung gtr in OM size, set up by Chris Bozung for light gauge strings, for
c. $3500, in case u know of anyone interested.
