So, I was changing out the strings on my guitar. I was gonna put on all new strings, except the high E (I had lost it) so I meant to keep it on the guitar. However, I forgot, and broke it. So, I took the old B string that I had just taken off, and put it on as the E. I tuned it all the way up to E like it's supposed to be.

Is this gonna work? How much different are the B and high E strings? Is there maybe too much tension on it, or is it fine? So far it's worked ok. It hasn't snapped, and it's kept in tune rather well. But how long will it stay like that?

I wouldn't use that as a permanent solution since the string will be of a greater thickness that a high E is supposed to be, but for now no biggie. You can go buy single strings at guitar shops for....well probably 50 cents

Definitely get a high E as soon as you can, but the B will work for now...
The B is thicker, so the notes won't be as trebly.
