Ok so im 3 strings and im gdg. Scale length 25.5". I'm using lite strings at the moment and I'm happy with the tension and sustain on the 2nd & 3rd, but the first string, tuned correctly, seems much looser and has got that buzz. I'm thinking a heavier gauge might fix the problem. Have I got this all wrong? I'd just like a bit more tension on the first string.
Hi, a heavier gauge would defiantly help. For me, for slide playing, I'd go medium and even increase the first string gauge up also. On my six string slide guitar I'd use a 13 gauge string minimum sometimes 16g. Cheers Taff
