I am an avid acoustic guitar player, and have been using alternate tunings for quite a while.

i only have one problem, whenever i make the transition from standard tuning to 1/2 step down, my high e breaks.

i have had no problems tuning to any other tunings, but i have went through 4 sets of strings in the past month due to this. i have tried neumerous brands of strings and have no problem tuning to anywhere from open C to C# standard, but the transition from E down to D# always costs me that string.

any suggestions?

what?

threadstarter: is the string breaking while dropping the note to tune or while playing after it is tuned?
