You have to stretch your strings, especially if they are new. This involves pulling slighty on the strings away from the fretboard. Then retune and repeat untill tuning becomes stable. If not there may be a problem with yout tuners, bridge, or strings....

grab the middle of the string a stretch it, tune, stretch, tune, stretch etc

keep doing this until the string remains roughly in tune, then just play it

Yeah strings take a day or two (depending on how much you play and retune them) to stretch and stay stable.

yeah... new strings are always like that.... like when i tune new strings for the first time i get them all tuned then i pluck the low E and it is gay...
In your eyes I see the darkness that tourments you, and in your head where it dwells, I'll give you my hand if you reach out and grab it, let's walk away from this hell.

Hah, couldn't have said it better myself. Low E especially comes out of the closet like that.

I don't stretch my strings like most do... I'll tune a bit sharp, play with a lot of bends and repeat the process.
