I use Ernie Ball Super Slinky Nickel Wound Sets(.009 – .042) for my electric and Ernie Ball Earthwood Extra Light 80/20 Bronze Acoustic Set(.010 – .050) on my acoustic. They are great for my daily practice and they sound good.
Hi Kallie. The beginning is always difficult. I’m sure that if you practice on a regular basis, you’ll definitely get past this phase. 10-15 minutes of practice everyday will make a difference by the end of the month. Everyone here is learning something or the other and helping one another. This community is a gift from Brian and Syn. I wish I could go back to your age and practice the way I’m practicing right now with all the resources that I have access to. If you are interested to do something, it’s never too late or early. In time, I’m sure you’ll be able to shred like the guitarists who you look up to. So, NEVER QUIT! Keep practicing and cheers!
