Proud to be the first man to bend 3 steps. I owe it all to you, my loyal viewers. I wouldn't have made it to this monumental milestone without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I bend up 5 steps. Floyd rose whammy lift as well as string bends. I also play scales with the tuning heads. After training with the sitar crowd, it becomes very obvious that bending is a lyrical technique that is under-explored in western music.

Way to bend em, dude!!! I got an 8 - 38 set from watching the rick beato channel...but I'm too chicken to put em on...haha...What I get from the comparison is that the .007 gauge strings seem to fret out a lot to my ears...the .013 gauge have the least of that sound...for me the .010 gauge would be my choice of the 3...which is what i use on my strat...in standard...I'd like to try a heavier gauge tuned down to E#, but not .013s!! .011 at the biggest for me...I would just pull the .007s out of tune all over the place as well...I think it depends on your style of playin ...if you are stevie ray vaughn,...then...13s....if you are the rev billy gibbons, then 7s...if you are yngwie malmsteen, then 7s...(I have no idea how)

definitely a tone difference. the thicker gauge strings are warmer, fuller and less airy sounding. the 7 gauge sounds tiny in comparison to the others . id say 10s are the best middle of the road.

Why would they snap? If it's lighter it will bend much more in standard tuning.

Billy used to play with heavier strings, until BB King asked to try his guitar. Then he asked, "Man, why you workin' so hard?"

You should do 13 gauge on the lower 3 strings and then 7 gauge on the higher 3 strings

Why do we all play the same stupid licks? me included. It's not you bro. We need to come up with some new shit! really, Fucking boring. Again, me too!!
Got that excitement boys had at 12/13 in the bathroom. Haha what??? This is crazy. Haha!!!

Billy Gibbons likes them because he don't like to work too hard.

I'm 54 years old. Had I been an SRV fan growing up, I probably wouldn't be able to play at all now. I've been playing 8s for a few years. I'll never go back. I have locking tuners but they manually lock. Thanks for teaching me to never get automatic ones. The Good Reverend Billy Gibbons plays 7s. So, no. They are not a gimmick.

I think toni used 7s as well due to his finger accident. Thanks for the video. I worked my way up from 9s. Starting to rethink my string gage.

I’m pretty sure lead zeppelin used .7s for a while

I heard that .7s used to come with two e strings cuz you were definitely going to break them.

Complete beginner here, literally 2 weeks in - cheap 2nd hand guitar I bought for my daughter ages ago which never got played, decided to have a pop myself. Getting absolutely nowhere. Watched a video a couple of nights ago comparing strings and wondered if lighter strings would help... Amazon and 24 hours later, I'm putting 7's on and suddenly I'm able to start getting a sound and moving on from the first chord learned to new ones..... I'm happy to learn the basics this way then move up in gauges, so they do kinda have their uses!

I've always used Ernie Ball Slinky 9's since I was a kid. Flexible, but robust enough to hold the tone.

I'd be interested in hearing how heavy your pick is. I like lighter gauge strings - used .10's for years but moved down to .095's a couple years ago because I'm getting some arthritis. I've traditionally used heavy picks (1mm to 2mm) but have always felt I need my strings to provide some resistance or "bounce". I'd like to try .08's, but figure I'm going to have to go to a lighter pick as well with lighter strings. I recently read Paul Gilbert is now using .08's with a .6mm pick.

Nashville Tuning is all high E strings. Did it on Angie by the Rolling Stones, I think, but I don't remember. Also, Dust in the Wind was recorded like that. Epic, right?

Basically, the primary differences I heard are the sharp attack and strong sustain of the heavy strings (due to higher tension and vibrating mass), versus the extreme sensitivity to playing dynamics of the light strings. Based on that, I can definitely see why rhythm guitarists seem to prefer heavy strings and leads prefer light. I like the lights a lot, the feather-touch sensitivity seems to make the performance much more lively and organic. Though, when you can accidentally bend a semitone just from fretting a little crooked, you'd better have your technique down rock solid! 😄

when I was a kid I used Ernie Ball .009 because at that time everyone used them in my area. then one day, driven by curiosity, I tried the .010s and realized how much better the sound, the sustain and the distortion were much better. if I had bigger fingers I would also play with a .013 set like Vaughan or Vernon Reid. it was up to me they should ban strings from '009 down 😂😂😂 if I remember correctly, in the 1980s Malmsteen used .008 strings tuned half a tone below with jumbo frets and scalloped fretboard. practically "play the air".

I play 10s but honestly they sound not much different to 9s imo. The output difference is only 10% so I personally just use them because I dont play so often and my calluses wont stay if I used light strings.
Christian Kettlewell
wow, the .7s are way more what i hear in my head when i think classic rock, like Hendrix or Eric Johnson. i'm only 30 though

Heavy gauge strings naturally have a darker thicker tone while the thinner gauges have a brighter more tinny sound if you will.

I felt like these strings would be buzzing and/or getting out of tune or end up being bent way too easily before listening but they sound great! I imagine the fact they’re on a strat rather than another guitar helps a lot. Wonder if they have much sustain though... They KIND OF sound like they’d die pretty quickly.

Loosen the lock more and tap on the face of the head stop and the pin will fall enough to let the string thru.

I’ve bended more than that with my Jackson dinky minion guitars. But I share your feeling of the guitar feeling very new. The small scale guitars actually got me excited about playing again. All the staleness was blown away instantly, because every note and bend felt so different.

sorry, im a beginner, whenever i put on .08 gauge strings, i'd break the e string while tuning...is there any tricks or tips to not let it break before u even can strum it? and .07 is just crazy...how can u pull that off without breaking the e string....whoaaa
musicaleltd 11 days ago
I don't hear a huge difference; i'm going down from 10 to 9 on my strat currently, but i'm getting some work done on my gretsch and i'm thinking of changing those to 8's; got 10's on a tele

I would hire you based on your 0.10 sound, but neither of the others. No one wants a guitar player with too much bass EVER. The only records you'll hear this on are when it's the producer who is playing guitar also
