Subject: RE: Gtr: Are strings >10 bad for you?
I think John's comments have the been the funniest. I'm not sure if the question about "curling your hands" was a joke, but that referred to the player's hands becoming warped allegedly due to strings that are two heavy.

I had forgotten that most of the mudcat users are from the U.K., but I was indeed referring to string diameter. The Guitar Center clerk claimed that after years of playing thick strings, his friends' hands had all sorts of trouble.

Because I saw that a certain group used 11s for a particular electric guitar and 13s for an acoustic, I thought I'd ask being that I had just bought the 11s.

Keep letting me know your thoughts on this! Thanks.
