I actually decided to start restringing my guitar after I watch a couple of video's (from experts) on how to do it. So far I have been trying to string up the first string on the guitar and it won't Bend and lock itself. What am I doing wrong or is it the guitar?

These are the things I did to it

@ I made sure the bridge is perfectly fine

@ I put more tension (well not enough to break the neck) on it because I took out all the old strings

@ The peg is at 90 degrees which the big hole is facing right.

@ some vidoes by experts say to wind the peg when the string is in. which i did.

@ I put 3 fingers below the string (probably were its pressured) and it's in it's neck slot.

i think you need to hold the string up and have the rest of the string wind around it, that way it'll lock in... i fail horribly at this too though :p

Guitars have strings? I thought ALL guitars these days have 5 colored buttons, a flippy thingy, and a crappy whammy bar...


Jk. It takes practice. Like learning to change the clutch on a bike.
Life is about taking risks, as long as the risks aren't too risky.
