I don't understand how you are supposed to tune the guitar once you get the strings on there... The strings make a really thin noise and I can't tell if it's in tune or not, infact just a min ago I tried to tune it after putting strings on there and my b string snapped and left a big gash in my finger (not that I'm complaining about the cut) and yes I did slowly tighten the strings like it says here in the lesson but on my tuner the B string was still flat compared to what it needed to be in normal tuning.

Anyways when does that really tinny noise go away on ur strings?

^ You have to feel the string which goes down the neck under the end of the string which comes out the tuner. It should look like the picture below when you've wound it properly.

Try to find a song which plays the low e open, then tune your low E to that.

If your B string is snapping and cutting you like that, you've most probably tuned it too high. Its happened to my a few times before while trying a very alternate tuning.

You also have to stretch your strings in as you wind them.

Then again, I guess not that many have a classical guitar and I suppose if you do have one, you would already know at least the basics.


It would still be a good idea to have it up, I had to find an online tutorial the first time I changed strings on my classical.

I have always had my own funny way of changing guitar strings and would like someone to explain to me in a simple manner what the correct process is,i have tried looking at websites but they seem to leave me more confused, the whole put string through, then leave slack , then turn anti clockwise, then loop over the string all seems very foreign to me!! i need someone to explain in an idiot proof manner!! i have noticed strings in guitar stored look really neat and tidy in the machine heads, mine however stick out and dont seem to be wrapped around like others ive seen!! i can play guitar quite well but cant even change strings properly, could smeone once and for all put an end to this ongoing nightmare!! any help would be very much appreciated

the Low E should have about 3 windings around the tuning peg, and the thiner the strings, the more windings they should get.

thread through your string, and have about 10cm coming out the other side, then start winding. when the end of the string gets to meet the string again, make sure the strin which you wont be cutting off goes UNDER the peice of string you threaded through. I hope that made sense.

As you wind, pull the string so you get tension on it, and you can control the direction of the windings by moving the strnig up or down.

Question. Why should you cut off the string? I just slacken it off with the tuning knobs, and then poke it through the back.
