The SRV attack just won't work with slinky strings. But 12s and 13s ...
As a point of contrast, does anyone know what gauge Brian May uses?
It's well known that he plays with a coin, but I saw an interview recently where he talked about having such an extremely light touch with picking that at the end of a Queen show the stage was always littered with coins he'd dropped.
I wonder if he uses heavier gauge because of the weight and inflexibility of the coin, or if he uses light or moderate strings because with a light enough touch it wouldn't matter.
