***Secret FSR Fender guitars? Yes, they exist, and they're right here

"Distance" song plus notes about Dunlop guitar strings

I decided to give Dunlop guitar strings a try (specifically, model DEN0942); they certainly have a different "character" about them, which is difficult to describe in words...

...so I wrote a quick song instead. :-) I purposely did it "acoustically," which is to say I used nothing but "clean" tone. The guitar used was my Squier Bullet Strat.

What I can say about these strings so far is that yes, they break in faster and yes they project better compared to the D'Addario EXL120 sets I was using. Will I switch over to Dunlop? I just might, because so far they've proven to sound and feel very good - but - I just installed them.

Will they be able to survive a month (I change strings out at least once a month) without snapping and still sound good? I'll know in a month. :-)

The song above is available as a free MP3 download on my tunes page, so go ahead and grab it from there if you like.
