I have finally been playing guitar long enough that I have to change strings. My only problem is I am not 100% sure how. My teacher showed me how to change the low E string and now I am trying to do the A string myself. I have noticed the string I am trying to put on seams to have 2 ends. One ends with the nylon (or whatever thread like stuff is inside a classical guitar string) poking out (and the metal stuff coiled around it gets further and further apart until it is no more) and the other is cleanly cut off. Which end of the string is which? Or should I cut off the end with the thread hanging out a bit and make them both the same.

Its a classical acoustic. And thx for the link LEPIV, although it did not really answer my question.

I guess he's talking about classical!
btw This subject really interests me: I changed my old electric guitars strings many times with various results, now its about time to change strings to the new beloved expensive new guitar, and id like to know a little bit more about it before putting my hands on it! Isnt there any topic showing the right technique to change strings for an electric guitar on the forum?

@kilbie: I don't think it really matters which end of the string is where...
Don't worry, be happy.
