I think guitar gods sometimes forget how hard it is for a beginner to strum a chord. Its important to learn chords but its also important to make music that's pleasant to listen to.

I live in Wellington and buy all my guitar strings on ebay. There's lots more selection than in any New Zealand music store. I use D'Addario FlatTops - EFT16. Hardly any screeching when you slide on the low strings. Most excellent.
