As promised, here are some videos with my old guitar and the new strings, the 13s that I put on yesterday. Sounds great…
The first one was even without the finger picks. Unbelievable how loud it suddenly is. Also, I tuned it down half a step; it’s now in E flat, so I’m actually in F sharp on this song since I didn’t put the capo on. That gives the guitar even more power. Of course, it also means I will have to play a lot of songs with the capo on the first fret now, but for this song it actually fits. It’s way more relaxed, the way this song should be sung.

Here’s another one, country strumming this time, also without a pick.
