Hiya! ok, here is my question. My D string has a notch or something on the 2nd fret. And I've been using this notch as kind of a guidline as where to put my fingers. Is this a bad thing? Should I go buy some new strings?
idk if its gonna be catastrophic to your strings in the near future but it might break at that spot sometime down the road. i would try not to get used to the notch because obviously its not gonna be on every set of strings
yes, buy new strings, put them on
That notch is most likely a kink in the string from fretting too hard or the strings are old. Regardless of how old the strings are, I recommend that you change them.
Ok I will change them, they are old strings anyway...and I'm relying too much on the notch I think...thanks for the replies
