i thread them though the tuning peg and wrap em around a few times, then i pull them down around the bridge really tight and tie them in a neat bow
the right way
the normal way, except that i use piano strings and cat whiskers to increase sustain, i use a titanium tailpiece and a rare earth magnet bridge with beryllium saddles to maximize position of the strings in relation to the polar dynamic of the pick stroke, while eliminating "gate freeze" within the saddle itself. i also use lubricants from nasa to help the strings seat proberly in the nut, which was carved from a piece of bone taken from my little finger on my right hand. i found the finger redundant and basically a vestigal appendage, hence its removal.
hope this helps!
I do it the same way as Jimmy Page, except I invert it when I get to the 3rd string, top-wrap the 4th and tune the 5th to B# (Jimmy Page invented this note).
Then I usually raise the action a spot and tweak the truss-rod.
After that I take de-string and apply raw linseed oil to the fretboard, before restringing in the opposite manner to that stated above.
Note : My low-E consists of half-a-dozen unwound banjo strings which I wind together myself.
The Wrong way.
lol i mean i saw some different ways like How To Change Guitar Strings- Stringing to stay in tune - Locking Strings to the tuner
or do you just make hips of wraps around the tuner post or do you have a different way?
I pull it through the tailpiece, take it up to the tuning peg, I measure 3 fingers past the peg, put a bend in it, thread it through the peg, then put another bend in it going the other way, I then pull on the string a little to take out some of the stretch in the string, I then turn the peg using a winder (its just a lot quicker), taking care to ensure the string winds down towards the headstock. Lastly I snip the excess off. All of this takes about 1min per string.
I am interested in mobprops process, but dont wish to lose my finger!
Where can I get said Nasa lube?
I get all of my space lubes from Hotchkiss Astronaut Supply in Tempe Arizona. They are having a blowout on ceramic heat plates and freeze dried meatballs at the moment. check them out.
Hmm - "Not for internal use"
I do that with my Floyd Rose equipped guitars ..all except the Neat Bow part
What the hell is that???
That is the exact same method I use but I also run the first wind over the top of the string where it comes through the post and the rest under the string to "lock it in". Once I pull the slack out of them during the initial tuning, they stay in "near perfect" tune except for a small amount of variation due to temp change.
You need strings ????
A Jackson Randy Rhoads. DUH!
Real guitars are for old people.
for an honest answer, i top wrap, then after threading the string though the tuning peg i lock the string on itself and wind.
