    IIRC, Frosty played with fingerpicks (Alaska piks, they might have been called?) . . . perhaps they made up for those soft/quiet TI Spectrum strings.

    I prefer D'Addario phosphor bronze, usually the coated EXP variety. Mostly light gauge, but mediums on a couple guitars that seem to need a little extra tension to drive the top.

    Geo, that's right. Frosty is a master of clawhammer technique and (I think) other fingerpick techniques. I just use my finger tips and am a master of absolutely nothing except hot air. :)

    Honestly, I don't want to put words in his mouth, I think he just really liked those strings. They do last a very long time, and he told me at one point that he likes the played in sound and feel.
