    Did that just last week.
    Swapped the G and the B, then spent two minutes wondering why I couldn't get it in tune...

    Not sure my colourblindness had anything to do with it, though.

    The easy way to tell the difference is to gently squeeze toe strings when coiled. The thicker strings will be stiffer to squeeze. A trick I learned when all I could afford was the Musician's Friend cheapie strings that all came in the same pouch with no color coding in the early 2000's. Never crossed strings after doing it.

    I pronounce it Dee Ah Dah Ree Oh but it's actually much ado about nothing. No matter how you pronounce it everybody knows what you're talking about. I guess it's better to worry about inconsequential stuff like this than to think about reality.

    Given there's a ' after the D, any pronunciation that emphasises the D' as a separate syllable is probably wrong...
    So Dee-Addario or Da-Addario or Duh-Addario, are probably all not correct.

    It is most likely Da-dario. With A's as in Mario.

    So if I say dee ah dah ree oh in reference to guitar strings you'll have no idea that I'm talking about the D'addario brand?

    this is how it works, there are good reviewers on youtube and bad ones :D There is basically no barrier to entry and we're getting them for free, so things like this happen.

    Btw, pronunciation of the company name doesn't bother me when it's from someone who doesn't speak English as their native language.

    Which is the other good point in all this. In the end, it's about communication. If the listener understands what's being discussed then the factual information being imparted can be parsed out from the speakers literacy or lack thereof.

    welp...after hearing that, how many of us pronounce it correctly? i definitely don't enunciate the second "a" like that ;)

    It's like when news reporters speaking in English say "Puerto Rico" in a Spanish accent..it doesn't sound right to me (changing accents in mid-sentence), even though I know it's the right way to say it. We're all different, talk a little different, it's all good with me :)

    Yep , I never gave it a second thought. My grandparents came over from Italy, my grandfather would say oh sheet, I knew he meant chit.
