I play ernie ball power slinkys. Strings are really about personal preference, as well as what style your going to be playing. After a couple of yrs of playin on 11 gauges anything less feels like dental floss hahaha. Most strings are pretty cheap so this allows you to experiment w/ different types w/o breaking the bank. This is about the only piece of equipment you'll be able to do this w/...so take advantage!!!Oh also since your just starting out lighter gauge strings will help your fingertips out. Take it from me treating open cuts on your fingers doesn't feel good! Once you build up some strength and "tuff skin" or "chops" as i like to call it you can bump to a higher gauge or stay where u are remember it's totally up to you ;)
