Sorcha,
what I hate is when I break my G string while playing in church. Really is quite embarassing.

I started breaking strings on a regular basis in my church band. We were doing some Daryl Evans stuff that would get particularly driving.I, of course, was playing an unamplified acoustic and singing unmiked over the drums and the rest of the amplified instruments. What the heck, everyone said they could hear me at the back of the church.Anyway I was playing a little harder than I normally would. Ended up buying heavy gauge D"Aquisto Acoustic Brass Masters for 3.50 a set online.

Cured the problem. Only now my fingers bleed a lot.

Mbo, you go.Belt it out!
