Okay, I got a new set of strings today, and it's taken me about an hour to get the first three on lol. I've gotten stabbed by strings, wound strings around the peg wrong, just about anything you can imagine. Point is, with my current level of frustration and finger injury, I'd like to do the other three tomorrow. Is there any reason I have to put them all on at once? They're the same guage as my old strings. Thanks

Wait....what? lol. So your strings attack you? Wth man, what string brands are you using!? O_O

You don't have to put them all on at once...but I rather get it over with than wait another day.

Ernie Balls man... They're evil little bastards. Snap at you when you least expect it. And thanks, that's what I figured, I think I'll wait to avoid wanting to smash my guitar.

Don't worry about the stabbing things.. I've gotten stabbed by my Jim Dunlops before, it bleeds doesn't it?
Sigs are overrated.

Dont keep only 3 strings on them for too long, or it will do some damage to your setup, like neck and bridge.

One time I stabbed one of my callouses on my left hand; it bled a little but it was contained by the callous and stopped in like a second... it was cool


But anyway, there's no need to change them all now, don't worry about it.

Ouch.

One thing of note: Don't get blood on your guitars strings. They dont' like it .

I remember the first time I put on strings and how freakin ugly the windings looked. It took a long ass time, too.

I actually kind of find it enjoyable to change strings (except when I change my 12 string; that's just a pain in the ass).

Locking tuners ftw!

Last time I tried to restring my squier, I got the string stuck and literally couldn't take them out. It was then declared broken.
