I think .009s are more popular, to facilitate all the bending, but I'm sticking to .010s for the time being. Can't tell you what Paisley uses.

I use .10's, but swap in a .16 G string, and sometimes a .48 Low E string........works to keep the beef, but make the pedal steel bends more manageable.

I hadn't, Joe, but thanks for the mention. I checked out his myspace. My hat's off to anyone who can take on a Brent Mason song like Hotwired! Great job, Echoplex!

To the OP.Sorry to derail your thread

Not a derail at all Billy ...
This is a thread about Country picking which, from one angle or another,
you are considered an authority by those of us who have heard you play .. :-)
