I'm trying to 'standardize' on 12s for both acoustic and electric and on 16s for lap style, but outside of nuts and bolts standardization has never really been an important part of my life.

Oh, and I would never use 'Facebook' and 'advancement' in the same sentence. Like I said, it's nice to see some po' boys back at this po' forum.

I never tune as high as standard. They bend.


I tune standard a 1/2 step down, because of vox.

Still pretty dang stiff to me.

And why would it not be anyhow with 12's?

Volume wise I need at least that size with a reso.

I mostly play 'lectrics with 10's

I like to be liking a tight but loose feel whether it be a Bigsby or a wraptail.

And to think that SRV often used 13's.

Dude musta' had neanderthal hands!

Yeah, I've gotten sucked into a bunch of the Facebook forums. Some of them are good, some, not so much. The slide related ones seem to have a fair share of people that can acti civilly.

I finished my Baritone tele. I still grab my tricone first. I'm finally rehearsing with a band for the first time in...a long time. The seem to put up with the fact that I don't want to play anything but slide, so I guess that's a good thing.

I guess I need to stop by more. Very glad to see some activity.


Do your 'thang.

And cool and the gang that you got a band 'thang goin' on.

That's a tough gig.
