I was restringing my guitar with 10-46 gauge strings, and I snapped the high E string. I ordered a new set of strings, but was wondering if it was ok to use a spare 9 gauge one, because I have it lying around. Will it cause any problems, or should it be fine?

it should be fine, 0.1 gauge isn't going to do much of a difference.

It should be fine, however depending on how you play you might not like the feel of the skinnier string.

itll be fine. I did that with a D string a few months ago

it'll be fine. the tension difference between a 9 and a 10 is pretty negligible. it may feel a little funny, but the High e has the least effect on the neck, so there is little chance you could do anything really.

It's really 0.09. Not trying to be rude though.
