Re: restringing a guitar.
well, I finally had to do it! That darn G string frayed enough and while the guitar was sitting idle it just broke. I guess it was one of those fiber nylon wrapped with metal deals... cuz when I opened up the new strings I saw that the G string in my new pack was a solid nylon string. THANK GOD for that (I really beat that G string up something fierce!). So, I watched every video I could find and read everything I could and I don't think I did too bad! My knots are all nice and tight and I even wrapped the ends under. I'm not really sure how I like the look of the knots up at the tuning pegs, so I might try something different there next time, but all and all it was a successful string change! Thanks again to everyone for their suggestions!
I couldn't really play the first day cuz every few minutes I could hear those nylon strings going flat... I think it's calming down now tho and I can play for about an hour before they start going flat again. Hopefully they'll even out in the next day or so. It was quite a bummer to find that I couldn't play cuz there was a broken string... and then couldn't play immediatly after the change cuz the strings had to stretch! I guess THIS is where having an extra guitar could come in QUITE handy! LOL!
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.
