Probably sounds stupid, but whats your least favorite string on guitar?
For whatever reason, tuning stability, always breaks, sounds like crap, etc.


Me, G string. NEVER STAYS IN TUNE DAMNIT!

G is best for string bends. High e just rings out too much for my taste. Not bad as high b on baritone scale though.

My B string is a bitch to tune.

Personally, i'd buy her a can of Coke, then as she's drinking it say to her "Whats better than Coca Cola?" She'll go "What?" and you shout "CREAM SODA!" And ejaculate in her can.

I'm gonna go with the G too... Purely because of the jokes.. They got old within two days of playing guitar......
#15
My B string. It's the one that breaks the most. My G string is my favorite though. I'm going for a record to see how long my g-string can last before it breaks. Been 9 months so far

I hate the G string when it's unwound. Put a wound string on and it's much easier to deal with. Sure, no SUPAR BENDS FOR YOU! but I prefer to use lighter bends.

I don't like to use the high E a lot with my junko amp. It's bright to the point of being brittle and piercing. Wish I could get a new amp...

G as well.

It stays in tune fairly well, but out of all of 'em, it goes nuts the most.

High E. I'm a rhythm player, and when I do solo, I don't usually go to the B and high E strings.
#27
The g-string is always the hardest string i think to put on.


It isnt thick or skinny, its just wire, and it doesnt want to bend.

D for me, since D-G is always in tune, and G-A is always in tune for me, but D-A never is, so you can choose between an A chord sounding like hell or a G chord sounding like hell.

#33
the 3rd string tuned 3 semitones below the 1st string (high) tuned 3 qaurters below the 5th string, that is tuned a semitone higher than the 2nd string which is perfectly in tune with the 4th string, which just happens to be slightly out of tune, when compared to the down-tuned 6th string (low).

so yea, the G is the worst... but i like to make it sqeal
#34
I dunno the the G is such an beetch but it is...

Quote by tacoman
low E. it always just gets in the way and i don't use it too much

I said high e, breaks easily, harder to bend, can't get pinch harmonics easily, and buzzes a little on my guitar. :p

I hate the B string, just cause its a half step off from the rest. I wonder how much less complicated stuff would be to write if you didnt have to adjust for that.

Oh yeah G definitely, no question about it. Every tuner I ever use says it's in tune, but I have never ever played an open A chord and liked how it sounded, and when I pluck the strings seperatly the G always sounds off.
