How to change a broken string? Firstly confirm which string is broken – E / A / D / G / B / e – Let’s say it’s the top “E” string that’s broken. Remove said string, firstly by unwinding the string from the tuning peg at the head of the guitar. Then unthread the end from the bridge or base of the guitar. Follow this pattern in reverse to install your new string. Firstly, by finding the “E” string from the pack (always use the correct string), then threading it into the bridge or base of the guitar. Next thread the other end of the string through the tuning peg at the top and ensure to tighten the string the correct way. Pull out your guitar tuner and start tightening until you hit an “E”. Top tip, dont over tighten your string! Once you’ve tuned your string, this will need to be played and re-tuned about 20 times while the new string stretches and settles into place.
Now on to the last bit of wisdom I wish to bestow on you. What brand of guitar string should I buy? In my time of playing guitar, I’ve played tens of hundreds of string brands to find the BEST!
