I haven't been playing guitar for a long time.. Today when I was trying to tune my guitar, a string broke.. I said well ok I haven't change the string since i bought the guitar maybe it got old... I read a tutorial on how to change the a string, and did it almost completly... when i was tuning the string i just changed, it broke again i felt REALLY stupid!! lol damn!! I have no back-up, so i gotta go buy a new set of strings...

You bought some cheap china-made rip off string didn't you? yeah, it happened to me once before.

You must be tuning the string well past its intended pitch. Either that or you have a burr on the saddle or something. Are you using a tuner? Even though your strings might be in tune relative to each other, you may be off relative to E standard or whatever tuning you're using.

Check that there are no sharp spots on the bridge, machine head or string tree (if it has one). If you find one, take a very light grit sandpaper and LIGHTLY sand out the sharp spot

It happens, even if the string is far from being too tense, happened to me twice so far in 3 years of playing. Both times on my cheap acoustic, probably has something to do with it I guess...

actually i think the dumest think is that you claim to have been playing for a long time, but you had no idea how to change a string

I wired my input jack wrong and my pedal tuner was acting crazy and I couldn't get a good read out.

I sat down at my computer to double check the diagram and I hear, ping, ping, ping - e, B, G.

this was last week and I was so freak'in pissed.
