Am I the only one who thinks Paul Riario sucks at guitar? I can't be the only one, can I?


Does it seem like they have less sustain or something? The frequencies are more pronounced in some kind of weird areas, it seems to me. Like higher mids. Yet somehow they kind of sounded sort of cheaper in a way, like they were made of junk-shop metal, or like they transformed a good guitar into a slightly trashier one in some weird way. Like they're clankier in a way. I'm not sure. But i wouldn't mind hearing more of his playing!



I'd like to hear a comparison of the M-Steel and Cobalt strings.
