Hey guys & gals, I fortunately got the opportunity of a lifetime.... I've been contacted by a fella Gene Breeden from Nashville to come down and record an album next month. Gene has worked with everyone from Garth Brooks, George jones, haggard and Waylon to name a few. He grew up with buck owens and had a hand in the Bakersfield sound and found don rich for buck. Anyways ive been using regular slinkys for years.I got some new strings for my Tele's and I'm taking my new AVRI pure vintage 52 tele down with me that I got while in Nashville back in October. I got dadario 10-46 and DR 10-46 and 10-52 (I believe). I put the DD's on tonight on the AVRI and my 50's RW Tele's. I don't know if I'm just use to the EB's or what. They sound okay and all but what do you guys think the best are for recording? I'm gunna be doing some lead work and thought I'd see what was out there. Maybe I should stick to what I've been use to for years? Also, if I put the dr 10-52's on do I need to readjust the action or do you think I can get by without it? Any thoughts or those that record, what do you use? Also, on both gits the high E string where hard to keep in tune. I could literally watch the tuner go from E go down past D# for a while. The EB's never have done that for me. I slap'em on, tune'em up and away I go. I always get long winded in here lol.
