kind of depends

Kind of depends on your musical tastes and playing style. Some people like a loose sloppy feel and go for really light strings. Some like more depth and feeling and go for a heavier guaged set. The way it works is the heavier guage you put on the harder it will be to press the strings down but the more kenetic energy that will be converted to electrical output. The lighter the strings the less electrical output but you can press them down easier. If you hessitant about what to use just ask for a set of 9's. Try them out and if you feel you want a little more uuummmphhh, the try 10's next time you change the strings.

Re: Guitar strings,am i buyin the right ones?

I like the strings to be light and easy on the fingers.Heavier strings seem to make a friction sound when playing power chords I use Fender 150SL which is guaged 08-38.

12 string tuning- help!

Could anyone tell me how tune a 12 string? I cant seem to get the 3rd and 4th sets right.Also, on an acoustic, do you tune it to concert pitch or so many steps lower. Any advice welcomed. Thanks

Re: 12 string tuning- help!

I use a Korg tuner,and tune all of the larger strings first and match the octaves by ear in standard tuning. However one of my friends also plays a 12string he tunes down to c#and capo's up. He tells me that a 12strings neck can warp from tension. I have also heard this from quite a few guitar tech's.

Crossroads

If anyone has an MP3 of the guitar battle between Steve Vai and "Eugene" at the end of the film Crossroads i would be gratefull if you could send me it!

Re: help on finding sliknot/slayer sound

Slipknot uses Carvin amps,with Mesa Boogie heads.EMG are active pickups which eats batteries.The sound is in the effects I recommend Boss or DOD stomp boxes. I have been playing for 15 years. I suggest you watch Disasterpieces. Listen to the tech's play on their gear and Root's EMG's due not sound near as good as Thompson's Warlock which I think are Seymore Duncans.Slayer uses EMG's however Dimebag Darell from Pantera uses a signature Seymore Duncan.

Coil Vs Chrome

can anyone tell me the difference from open coil and covered chrome humbuckers?

obviously sound but for a semi begginer should i invest in chrome or coil?

Re: Coil Vs Chrome

It's really more about looks than anything. However myself I use open coil. Because I like the look and I really cannot tell that big of a difference in tone. I however will recomend a few open coil humbuckers. I use Carvin M-22's and Carvin C-22's. In my strat I use Seymore Duncan George Lynch Screaming Demon.
