Anyone know what kind of strings Mr. Marr uses on his guitar?

Thank you in advance.

Daddario acoustic strings and Ernie Ball electric.

Smarty pants! Thank you. I too use Ernie Ball strings (super slinky). I bought them cause I heard Jimmy Page uses them.

Hmm. Page uses a lighter gauge, .008 to be specific. He does more - I was going to say bending but that could be taken the wrong way!

I've since heard several people say that the D'addario acoustic strings go flat after a few uses. People talk all kinds of sh*t on the Internet though...

Another interesting one here, at about 27.30 there's a nice moment where he mentions Morrissey putting vocals in unexpected places and how he worked around that.
