Daisy Posted November 19, 2021 Share Posted November 19, 2021 Lately this question has been on my mind. I noticed that some of the most popular guitarists use .010 gauge. Jimmy Hendrix has mentioned in multiple interviews that he has used 8 different kinds in his career. That's a lot. 🤩 You shouldn't (you can, but I wouldn't recommend it, haha.) just walk into your guitar shop, point at some strings and say "I'll buy those!" without first knowing a few things like the type of music you will be playing, or the tuning you'll use. Some people prefer thicker strings, and some prefer the thinner. I'd love to hear more about the strings you use and why you prefer them over the rest 🎸 Here is a small list of what our famous friends used. 🤘 Jimi Hendrix: .009, .010, .013, .015, .02, and .038. Jeff Beck: .011 - .049, and .009 -.052 Angus Young: .009 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
