Hey Guys taking a poll out there. What Type of strings you use, Round, Half or Flat wound. Currently Im using Round, have an extreme amount of scratching noise changing chords. Was wondering what everyone else uses.
If you've got a lot of scratchy noise between chords you might want to look at your string choices, but you may also want to take a look at your own technique (NO I'M NOT SAYING ANYTHING NEGATIVE).
I'm not sure because you didn't mention, but I'm assuming you're experiencing the sound on your acoustic guitar rather than an electric. For my acoustic I use D'dario phosphor bronze mediums, (10-50 i think? don't remember?). If you're using a light gauge of strings, it may be playing a role in the scratching, as they're easier to get moving due to the smaller mass of the string.
Another thing to take into account is that EVERYONE goes through phases of being over-analytical in their own playing. Something that sounds huge to you may be completely negligible to someone else.
IF you notice that you get sore fingers after around 30 minutes of playing, it may be because you're simply just dragging your hand along the strings a bit too heavily, the simple solution would to be just to lighten up your grip and try to relax yourself a bit when you play.
And if none of this stuff works, just reply back or try to contact me with more specifics such as if you're playing electric, distortion, strings, genre of music you're playing, etc.
