haha.  thought about it, but all i've been doing so far is playin around with some scales from guitar.  I just started the lesson on hir for swan lake.  my left arm and right thumb are killing my.  I do have a question about strings.

 

I have the helicore strings now.  they are not real loud for the classical sound.  they sound great when playing the blugrass thing i've been playing (wait so long)

Helicores are great strings as far as steel strings are concerned and very powerful as well. They are probably the best Steel core strings around, maybe because they have steel strands in the middle instead of solid steel like most steel strings.

In any case, what is your question?

Welcome to the forum, iojo2! 

Strange thing with your strings. I had have stil strings and synthetic core strings. Steel set is louder duncecap

Steel - Thomastic spirocore (Red)

Synthetic core - Pro Arte J56

Both medium tension.

Love both of them in different ways =)
