Topic: Guitar Strings: Accoustic and Electric
A couple of strange questions, so please bear with me.
1. Do any of you play with colored guitar strings? I have seen them advertised on Amazon and eBay, but I didn't see a brand name I recognized, such as Ernie Ball or D'addario. So one of my questions is concerning the strength of the strings once the dye is added to color them. They look pretty, but the ones I saw on Amazon were cheap, so maybe the quality is as well.
2. Second question concerns finger tuning. I tend not to use a pick to pluck my strings, favoring the "warm" sound of my thumb.
I know it must be a matter of style and guitar (Classical Guitar I am thinking of you here) but have any of you played your electrics with just your fingers and is that what "shredding" means?
Thanks as always for your insight!
