I have come to a great realization!! I played for 2 years with 1 set of strings. I tend to use everything until it falls apart. Anyway, when I got new strings I never noticed any difference - feel or sound!!!
I just put on a new set after another couple of years and I notice a huge difference sound and feel.
I think, can it be? that maybe, just maybe this is proof I am getting better!! Or is it that I notice because I am a gimp at present and not running around like a headless chicken?
