I was just wondering about how tight i should string the guitar. Does it matter how tight they are. Obviously they will break if they are too tight. But is it easier to play if they are tight or loose? I like to play metal which gets pretty fast at times so whats easier to play with? although im sure its just a comfort thing.

you do know that the tightness of the strings depends on the tuning...

least thats what i think
if you tune down, the strings get loose
if you tune up, the strings tighten

so just tune it to regular 440

Whodicted

+1, usually with metal you tune lower, e.g., looser strings.

Opeth-death metal band does fine in standard tunning..

Anyway to the threat started buy yourself a tunner.

if you want to change how heavy your strings feel in a particular tuning you should try changing your string size. If you find a size you like better than the one your using now you should consider getting your nut filed.
