Elixir Strings are Roundwound, by far the most popular format with a comfortable ribbed texture and brighter sound. Half Round strings are ground down to give smoother feel and warmer tone, while Flatwound strings have an ultra-smooth surface and a vintage sound that makes them popular for mellow, jazzy playing.
I’m sliding up and down the fretboard, moving capos mid-song, and trying to hit harmonics on their sweet spot.
