Subject: RE: Gtr: Are strings >10 bad for you?
Tens are okay for a small-bodied guitar like a 00, but large bodied guitars need heavier strings for optimum sound. Lighter strings mean less volume, less bass, less punch. If you primarilly play solo or if you always plug in, that's fine. But don't be taking a guitar with extra-light strings on it to a bluegrass jam and expect to be heard.
