I have been playing acoustic guitar for almost 5 years and I wanted to upgrade to a better guitar. After some research and hands-on testing I purchased a Cort AD880CE. But after 2-3 days practice I feel like the strings are too stiff to press and giving me sore fingers. I cannot play it well as compared to my old acoustic guitar which i have already sold :(.
After some googling I found that choosing lighter-gauge strings will solve the problem. What's this gauge rating? I have a D'Addario string set labeled .011-.052, what does this mean? Will this string set work fine on my Cort AD880CE?
Thanks in advance.
