Calling all silk and steel string users!
On the recommendation of some wise old heads around here, I recently switched to silk and steel strings and a BlueChip pick. I'm loving the mellow sound, but in about one week I've broken two G strings. Full disclosure--- I do like to bend the old strings a fair bit.
The gauge I've been using is 11; maybe I should drop down to 10s? or is this just something random?
Paul Cezanne: "I could paint for a thousand years without stopping and I would still feel as though I knew nothing."
Edgar Degas: "Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.... To draw, you must close your eyes and sing."
Georges Braque: "In art there is only one thing that counts: the bit that can’t be explained."
