Hey guys, I've just put new strings on my guitar, and now I can't play certain lower frets on my high E strings as if the action was too low... but I haven't adjusted the action at all. This has never happened to me before - will it change by itself or what do I need to do?

are the strings a higher gauge than the ones before, cos that would cause it, if you dont know what gauge your od strings were then im guessing they were lighter, you need to raise the action

Do you have a floating bridge?

you could raise the action to see if it helps anyway, but i cant really thing of anything else.

take it to a professional to get them to adjust it. Much faster then dealing with it yourself.

the action probably lowered. this happened to me and i took off the tailpiece part and i had to readjust it. isnt that hard if you know what your doing.

I don't understand - I left my guitar for ten minutes or so to find out how to change the action. I pick it up again and it's working fine; is this normal?

I hopeless when it comes to DIY =[
