Topic: Hummin' Strings
Hey, y'all crack me up on these discussions! Loved the one about the slipping picks! Thanks for the chuckle!
I have a new Jasmine steel 6 string that I've "upgraded" from an old Fender nylon that for the life of me, I can't remember how I got it. I'm very new to playing...just been 6 weeks...but I've been singing country, gospel, bluegrass practically all my life so I'm not new to music. Strumming is all I'm doing so far and have enjoyed ALOT of songs from this site but I get frustrated when the strings keeps humming or don't quite sound on key. I'm always double checking the tuning which sounds good until I play some chords. All I'm playing are easy chords and I thought my trouble was the wider neck on the Fender, hence the new Jasmine. I'm a girl with small hands and thought this would fix my problem but the steel strings hum even more. Would changing the strings help this problem or am I just still too weak to press down the strings enough? I read about the Elite strings here and thought that might fix this....
Open to suggestions.
Thanks for the help!
