Thread Name: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!
Subject: RE: Martin 58. Gibson 2. Holy Cow!
I use Martin Silk & Steel strings on my guitar, and nothing else. They are the closest thing ever to classical guitar strings. A few years ago, my steel string sat in the corner and collected dust because I hated playing it. Played my classical all the time. Then my guitar teacher (a professional acoustic guitarist & singer) said that I should try changing the huge phospurus strings to Martin Silk & Steels. He was a fingerpicker/flatpicker like myself, and swore by them. Well, I changed the strings, and fell in love with playing that guitar. It's great, because they are always marked down, and I can get them really cheap because they're not much in demand. I love the way they sound. You can't change, can't change, can't change me.
