Amen to that.

My own playing style is generally, um, violent, I guess. I attack the strings like they were unruly weasels. I have only one guitar with a tremelo, and I rarely play it.

I use 11s as well, with the bottom at 52s (50s for my Steinberger). I like the chunky sound, and I like the way the top strings have that loud, clear tone (plus they hold up better under my heavy hand).

My goal as a guitarist has always been to sound as if I have Satan trapped under a lawnmower.
