ok so i have 2 guitars, i broke my bottom e string on both guitars and have no money for strings, so my question is if i take the b string off one guitar can i substitute it for the e string?

^reported, that's the stupidest thing i've ever heard.

And no, you can't really go around substituting strings like that.

You can't typically substitute strings in that direction, but if you had a broken b string and needed it desperately, it's POSSIBLE to stick a high e in there and tune it to a ridiculously floppy and bad sounding b.

I actually don't have an E for my top string, I have the next one really tuned up... I ran out of extras, so I did that and it doesn't sound too bad, I suggest new strings, though.

Cheap strings are only a few dollars dude.


No matter how tempting and satisfiying it may be, don't spend all your money on crack.

Yeah, get new strings. If you're worried about shipping, I recommend Sweetwater, since they have free shipping on lots of stuff without a minimum. You can't just expect the same performance b/c of the massive differences in gauges.

1. It was spam, wasn't even remotely on topic, spam gets reported.
2. Having a laugh? No, just being a twat.

Anyway, you can't really substitute strings like that, i don't think you could tune a b string up to an e anyway, it would just snap.

Seriously, even D-Arddios, which are good strings, cost 3$ for a whole set.
I mean, come on.
I can find that much in my couch.
Rap is music too. It is just another evolution of the medium. Don't be a douche and say it isn't.

spam is anything off topic...and that comment was just stupid anyway...and if he was trying to make people laugh...he needs to just stop telling jokes right now, cuase he has no sense of humor.


and you could even just go to your walmart and get a 2 dollar set of strings....they wont be the best, but they work, and there cheap.

What I meant to say was "Don't substitute strings for other strings". It came out wrong though.
