First please don't get angry if i use some wrong words or terms , i am just a balkan-boy. So , i recognized that people with a lot of pounds have a lot of meat on their fingers , and that i like how basses sound better (for me) when they plug the string. I also recognized that i am not one of them So I started to think about this mysterious rule , if it is a rule . Who knows ? Me not ! O.K. hit me if i am wrong , and push the back button . If i am right , i maybe have a solution which sure sounds crazy . It goes like this : Some have a fat finger . I have a thiny one . If i use some "lighter" gauge instead 45-125 on my Stingray5, would the string say " Hmm....i am smaller than the string he usually uses , so his fingers are for me wider . If this makes any sense , i should sound better , heavier , fat , just like he wants me to ???" Please stop laughing after ....about an hour , and hit me with a reply . For my defense ia have to say that i am just some balkan-boy , from some small balkan country called Croatia . Thanks , and merry christmas !
