Topic: Opinions please
I have a problem of overplaying my strings. My right hand technique is heavy to the point of being ridiculous, which creates a lot of extra tension and slows me down a great deal. It also means I have output issues when I solo 'cuz it's really hard to play fast AND hard...unless you're SRV.
I've been considering dropping from 11-48 on down to 9's on all my electrics and switching to light picks in order to teach myself to play lighter. Light strings will sound like hell if I overplay them and they will likely break all the time, but I can't think of a better way to re-teach myself a lighter touch.
