    Please delete this if it's already been covered.

    I used 10's on Gibson and Fender scales forever, 11's when I had to tune down 1 or 2 steps. I always tore the crap out of my frets within 2, maybe 3 years tops.

    If you ain't got much to do
    You might like to hear a yarn
    'Bout what all goes on at night
    Out behind Aunt Millie's barn

    Ol' Millie ain't what she seems to be
    She wears a pleasant face
    But don't you cross that woman, or
    You'll never leave her place

    I'll never say how many men
    Have died by her cold hand
    But the daisies she raises behind that barn
    Are the tallest in the land

    Witch or bitch, we don't know which
    Perhaps a bit of each
    But I'm not the sonofabitch
    To inquire within her reach

    P.S. I bought a set of Ernie Ball 8-38s from Sweetwater. I'm going to throw them on my Strat Ultra.

    I was kidding. Keep on writing lyrics.
    If you did win a grammie then there would be free Ernies for life.

    Aunt Millie
    was a witch, she was burned alive.
    Thankless little bitch, Oh the tears I cried.
    Take her down now, don't want to see her face
    All blistered and burnt, can't hide my disgrace.

    Etc.
