i just got a bunch of them but what are you supposed to do with the skinny part at the top of string that isn't the same width as the other part---- cut it all off?
#2
It's used to thread through the tuning pegs. Yes, cutting it off would be the best idea unless you want to roll it up in case the string slips out of the peg.

yea cut it off, when i restring my guitars, i usually cut it with like 1.5-2 inches left beyond the tuner and crimp the rest in case it slips.

ps- this is my personal prefrence, but if it's an eletric guitar you're stringing, dont go w/ d'addrio. idk i just dont like them. but theyre ok for acoustics

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
