There are so many types of guitar strings available it can be overwhelming to know which kind to use. Guitar strings come in different gauges and different kinds of metal. There are alloyed guitar strings, steel guitar strings, pure nickel, silver, gold plated and bronze guitar strings. You can buy Teflon and even cryogenic guitar strings. These are just a few types of what is available on the market. Acoustic Guitars use bronze wound strings. Heavy metal guitar players mostly prefer steel guitar strings, though they do wear your frets out a bit faster. I would recommend trying the pure nickel guitar strings they have a good feel and a good sound. Because the guitar strings change the way that your guitar sounds each player needs to experiment with different strings to find the sound that they like.
