I'm trying out a new brand of strings (the DR Red Devils), and they're sort of dead now, but I kinda like the sound I'm getting. I used to always love that really bright, crisp sound, but now that these are dead they sound kinda... sleepy. http://herculeaneffort.adventuredevelopers.com/sleepy.mp3 C & C please. I seem to be getting really loud fret slide noises. Is it all about just moving your hand around very softly -- the feather touch?
