   What's the difference in guitar strings?
 

 


     

Today I want to talk to you about strings and the different gauges that are available today.

Not only are there different brands of strings -- but there are also different gauges / thickness too!

Depending on what gauge / thickness you use determines the sound of your guitar playing!

Just remember...

The higher the gauge number -- the thicker the string
The lower the gauge number -- the thinner the string

Thicker strings last longer and have a chunkier sound. Thinner strings don't last as long and have a much brighter sound.

As a side note: if you find your strings vibrating a lot or aren't ringing out properly - this is usually because they are slightly touching the frets on your guitar.

If you have this problem -- go for a thinner gauge string and they will offer your fingers more room to move on the fretboard!

If you want -- check out: http://www.stringsandbeyond.com as they specialize in selling guitar strings and as well as offer free shipping on some orders!

Here's a rough guide to string gauge and thickness...

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:

 

As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. It’s a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
