Just purchased a set of D'Adarrio Jazz strings after a two year commitment with Ernie Ball SKHB, and the high e string (Eb, I play 1/2 step down), after playing the first riff from Pride and Joy (SRV), goes out of tune immediately, it's almost instant. What can fix this?

Did you stretch the strings out?...
Make sure they're stretched, and if it keeps happening, check your guitar. In very rare cases, a single string can be bunk. If that's the case, you should be able to buy a single string at your local shop for like 90 cents.
Sharp or flat? Is the nut pinching the strings? Is your trem set up to handle the gauge difference?
Hey guys, I fiddled around a bit and broke them in a bit more and the problem appears to be solved. Thanks for the advice.
