..sell single strings?

Just curious, cause my high E snapped early, and I DON'T want to replace all the strings, again.

Apologies for potential idiocy.

Thanks.

I don't think so.


And it's better to replace them all.

Don't go to the big guitar stores. They'll string you along, and instead of getting what you wanted you'll end up with a 100 Spider III.

Now what was your question again?

Apparently you didn't catch the pun that I went out of my way to put in there.

Yes, many do. Most only have high e's in .09's or .10's which I'm fine with, but there's too many guitarists out there that are like "OMG! I ONLY PLAY .11's or 12's CUZ IM LEET."
Quote by breakdown123
Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?
#14
Yeah, most stores will sell single strings, but you might as well buy a full set, and then only replace the high E; they don't sell singles much cheaper than full sets.

Not to mention, you're a guitarist; a full set of your strings is like, five dollars. Being a bassist, I pay $25 for a twin pack (two sets).

.10s sounds poopy when downtuned to C :[
But yeah most guitar stores should sell single strings pretty cheap, if not, I know musiciansfriend.com and other such websites sell them.

That's what I've heard about them from any guitarist who's used them. Not to mention that a friend said he could bend the E almost all the way across the fretboard. He never said what tuning he was in, but still, that really shows what they mean by "slinky".

Yeah, that way you have spare strings for if something else breaks. You can never have too many spare strings.

What kind o strings do you use? I get light D'Addario strings, and mine are $20.

I use medium gauge D'Addario's; I advise buying them in the twin packs, if they sell your specific kind in twins; they're a great deal compared to single packs. This is what I always order. What gauge are their lights? If anything, I would actually go thicker from where I am, but I have a preference for thicker strings anyways, so I'm not the best judge.

Ah, I hardly do any online shopping. This is what I get, the lights are .45

Same as mine, just light gauge.

Still, I would sound like shit with those; I prefer pick over fingerstyle, and play up by the neck, so even just from going to drop D, the E will occasionally hit the pick-ups on a fast song.

I sometimes get a few extra E and B strings, not because they break but they get a bit dented from my scalloped frets so I replace them every half the time of a full change. Super slinkys, $5.

Yeah, I can see why you'd need a heavier gauge. I play by the bridge a lot, so I don't have that problem.
