i just attempted my first string changing, and if they arnt wrapped around the tuning knob thingos prefectly (a bit loose), will they go out of tune easily or cause some problems?

i can provide a picture if people need clarification on "shit stringing job"

It's fine really, it just looks bad but it doesnt really affect the tuning stability...

Okay it doesn't look too bad but if you're still worried about them you might still be able to re-string them but they look they might hold for the time being. Although I'm merely guessing, try using the 'macro' setting on your camera.

all i got is a camera on my phone, best pic i can get.

and to the guy who asked how i stringed it, i just followed some tutorials on utoob
but now i needa fix the bridge, since its not level.

EDIT: pic aint getting any better, heres a paint recreation, as it suggests, its loose around the knob, so its not tight all the way around, and the rest is like 5-6 inches out, but i just need to cut the ends of it.

well you will find after a while if they are tight or not cuz your guitar will keep going out of tune. Just remember to stretch them a lot and returne a few times. In the worst case scenario you can just restring them.

Ive not long done my first strings change, I was following a video I found on youtube showing me how, the 3 low strings came out like yours but the high strings weren't too bad, I guess its just experience, I definatly had a tough time with it, they seem to hold tuning ok.

click the green link in my sig.

the first page explains stringing and how to adjust the bridge.

if you have questions look at that page. then ask questions.

Like the others have said, you will get better each time you do it.

As for it coming out of tune, new strings have to stretch. So, tune them , then carefully pull up an each one (about 1-2" should do) and retune. Repeat as needed. If you get slippage at the post, then wind it back up. It will stabilize.
