Thanks AD, I really like the D`Addarios, but my music store didn`t have them and he sold me the others. I also get a rattle at the higher strings with the Deans. Guess I shouldn`t have settled.
Thanks for the input.

Hi guys and gals
Just wanted to get a little input about what strings to use.
I own a segovia cutaway electric acoustic guitar.
I just changed the strings from D`Addario phosphor bronze
to Dean Markley vintage bronze. The Deans dont sound as good
as the D`Addarios and wont restring with them. (I find they rattle alot)
I`m not looking for a particular sound, just a nice middle of the road resonance.
What strings do you recommend and why.

Heres a solution for the Bm chord. Go to Iraq, steal a loaf of bread and get caught. Let them break all of the fingers on your left hand and viola, your fingers fit the pattern of Bm chord. If this is not your thing cheat, cheat cheat!!!    yikes
