    I think that my strings at the moment, are very hard, therefore making it harder to stop the farting of the strings. Would a softer set, e.g d'addario XL 220, be a lot better for cutting down on the farty sounds? Or is it my finger technique?

    OK, I've read this post several times, and I'm not sure what you're asking. If you could be a little more specific about the "farty" sounds, maybe you could get a little more help. I've recently been experimenting with different strings and gauges, so maybe I can help you if I can understand what you're looking for.
