joe stump didnt come up with 8-46, yngwie did.... but yeah, it depends also on the scale of the neck and what you tune to, cause that greatly affects the tension. I use mostly 9s, but on a LP scale neck (24 3/4), 10s will feel the same as 9s on a 25.5 scale neck.. so it all depends... Also tuning down obviously loosens the strings. I keep some guitars in E and some in Eb, i usually use 10s on Eb and 9s on E, 10s in E give you a lot more control i think.. a little more resistance can make things a lot more accurate depending.

Wow I have so much to learn when it comes to guitar. So many elements that can contribute to the strings and overall playability.
