The best acoustic guitar strings for fingerpicking


Choose the best acoustic guitar strings for fingerpicking is not an easy task. There are a wide range of string brands that have made it to the top of acoustic players’ lists. Some of them are making impressive advancements and offer a great value. Here are some of the best guitar strings for fingerstyle acoustic.

#1: Elixir Nanoweb


Elixir is quite a new name but their acoustic strings have been on so many “best strings” lists. The Elixir Nanoweb has been coated, which can keep their tone much longer than typical uncoated strings. There are two types of Elixir Nanoweb coated strings which come in phosphor bronze or bronze.

In addition to that, Elixir has a less popular comparable line and their tone is comparably warm and robust. As you might already know, for fingerpicking players, tone is a very important thing and the coating of Nanoweb does not compromise the tone. That is why it is a recommended one in the list.

However, the Nanowebs are expensive, like double the price of many other acoustic strings. But if you are one of those who don’t replace guitar string often, it’s a worthy investment. This is one of the top strings that most musicians (like Sungha Jung) prefer.

#2: Ernie Ball Everlast

Most musicians love this brand, especially acoustic players. The guitar strings from Ernie Ball have high quality and good sound. Also, they offer a very good price. Aside from that, Ernie Ball has constantly been innovating with new materials although they already have one of the biggest selections of gauges and materials on the market.
The Ernie Ball Everlast is another coated string with its coating is 1000 times thinner than any other coating. With the Everlast strings, fingerpickers can experiment with different tunings. Also, the Ernie Ball Everlast has a more balanced tone across the whole spectrum of the string gauges. Apart from the Everlasts, Ernie Ball also has more traditional and economical options such as the Earthwoods or the Tone Pack.

#3: Martin MFX740

The FX line of acoustic guitar masters Martin was designed for fingerpicking players. The flexible core of the MFX740 can increase flexibility which means you can play for longer before you get fatigued. It also helps improve sustain without sacrificing tone. Compared to Elixirs, the price of the Martins is quite a bit lower. Therefore, these guitar strings are worth considering. However, you need to note that these strings are not coated, which means they may not last as long. If you want to keep them for long, however, you have to sacrifice a bit of tone.

Conclusion
As a fingerstyle player, you can try as many strings as you wish until you find a string that you really loves. This list provides the best acoustic guitar strings that we recommend.
