I am trying to play the song get out of my yard with paul gilbert and he tunes the high e the b string and the g string in octave.
The high e is always an ,e no problem there.
The g you just tune one and a half step lower.
But the b string requires a perfect fifth higher tuning.
Can the string snap?
I think the condition of the string matters it is rather new like 1 month and the condition is good.

You need to get different strings for this. It's irritating, but it'll most likey break.

Its tuned E5 on top e, E4 on the B (octave lower than top string) and E3 for the G string (two octaves below top string).

So, the top E stays the same, the B string gets tuned DOWN, and the G string is tuned down

The highest you can tune the B up would be about E or F. I would do it very slowly though. Like said previously, tuning down would probably be an easier option.

.009 strings for your top 2 strings and if that 3rd one's down an octave, then get something like a 16 or 17.. idk, it's worth a try though.
