Which type of guitar strings?

Hello,
I just want to know that which type of guitar string is better for beginner guitarists because I have an acoustic guitar, but I am thinking to change the strings of my guitar. So please give some suggestion.

Thanks

Hi billgate, I don't understand your question, you are asking about which album because I didn't get it.

Elixir strings for sure yeah, they feel slick and not much cleaning is needed, so they feel new longer.

Just a small tip if you are just starting out and you find acoustic strings to be hard on your fingers there is nothing wrong with slapping a set of electric strings which are a much lighter gauge on your acoustic guitar

It actually still sounds decent enough especially if you are just starting out and haven developed much of an ear yet

Thanks crazyman, I will definitely try your tip after some time because recently I have bought an Elixir cord for my guitar so I will buy electric strings after some time.

I would not recommend elixer strings for any acoustic guitar. The webbing on the strings crack and leave residue on the strings causing intonation problems. They are the worst strings you can buy and they're overpriced.


You can't go wrong with D'addario.

For classical I recommend EJ45 Pro-Arté Nylon, Normal Tension.

Acoustic I recommend EJ11 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings, Light, 12-53.


It's a personal preference really.

it really depends on the guitar, different guitars have different necks and lenghts, the same gauge can be lighter or stiffer with the same pitch on different guitars!!! 12-53 is a bit rough no matter how flexible those are, i would go down on the thickness

extremely high strung thin strings can be soap slicers, though, so watch out

12-53 is light. You're thinking of electric guitar strings.

Plus if they're too light it sounds like shit under heavy strum and doesn't stay tuned very well.

nice example "like shit under heavy strum" ok so I will buy it, but is it softer on the fingers or not.

Why are you taking too seriously and also, why are you suggesting not using the steel string is there any defects in them.
