Stringing A Guitar
As you play more and more it becomes more apparent that, to get the desired tone, you have to have fresh strings. Therefore stringing a guitar properly quickly becomes a necessary skill to all guitar players if they want to keep their tone alive. Obviously the more you play, the more you need to change strings. After all they do get worn out. Strings can go from a bright resonance to a dull thud if not changed in a timely manner. Your style of playing, how often you play, and even how you store your guitar are some of the main factors that determine how long your guitar strings last. The process of stringing a guitar becomes very easy after it’s done a few times. No matter if you’re stringing an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar the process is pretty much the same.[/well]
