D'Addario 9-46...
or Ernie Ball hybrid slinkys (9-46 also)

i used to use blue steel but one time i bought a pack and it came with 2 g strings in one rapper, and the strings didnt last but a couple days so i just stopped

D'Addario seems the best for me

Cool Pick Slides and Slides into stuff?

Hey i was just curious if anyone has any ideas on some cool sounding pick slides and scrapes and stuff...i hear stuff that sounds really wicked all the time but can never figure out how to do it...like the pick slide in B.R.O by Racer X/Paul Gilbert
