Hey all, i really don't know if this is the right forum or not but hey....

ok, my problem is, i seem to use a lot of low E 6th strings. I have a few ideas why:

This is the most used string on my guitar
I tune down alot, putting stress on the string.
I hit it too hard (this seems least likely)
My bridge needs adjusting.

I really don't know which one it is, but the fourth string is the same one i have being using for the past 5 months whereas the 6th is about a month old.

give me some ideas to help me out.....

The saddle might be sharp... Look into that.

...modes and scales are still useless.

constantly changing the tuning from low like full step D back to nd stuff can put to much tension on the strings
I don't know dude. Buy some DR strings, they're the strongest and longest lasting. Ive never broken one and i slam my strings, even the high E. If those break then your guitar is sharp like dude said before.
a bur on the saddle most likely.
