G'day Everyone,

For the first time, yesterday i restringed my electric guitar. I restringed it with Washburn Paul Stanely Signature Strings (they were lying in my room). So i restringed 2 strings and they all tuned and everything, i just played an open chord Em. ANd it sounded terrible, the strings sounded like plucking an electric fence wire.

Is it meant to sound so metal-y?
Note: i am a bass guitarist =P

Cheers, Ben.
when you put new strings on, it takes some time for 'em to get in tune, and stay there.
plus the metal-y-ness is normal. you're probably used to the older, dull strings on before
yeah, i've got gear too...
