Stinging A Guitar Essay

1173 words - 5 pages

Changing guitar strings is a relatively easy process; although it definitely requires a bit of patience to get them correct. Once you have completely the steps a few times, this process may take about fifteen minutes to complete.
Important parts of the guitar that you will need to know about: the bridge located underneath the sound hole, the neck of the guitar is located where the strings lie it is made up of frets (this is the majority of where you place your fingers while playing), and the head where the tuning posts (tuners) are located.
Here is a list of items you will need to have on hand: nylon or steel strings, wire cutters, and tuner.
There are six strings therefore six tuning ...view middle of the document...

Now a quick reminder, each string is given a name they are: E, A, D, G, B, E. There are a few things that can be used as a guide when replacing guitar strings. If you have the original strings but wish to change them please replace one at a time in the same order as the guitar is already strung. If you do not have a diagram to follow or the guitar you are stringing has no strings, please follow this order: the skinniest string is the high E string which would be the first you start with. If you are holding the guitar as you play this string is the farthest away from you. The thickest string is the low E this is the bass sound of the guitar and this is located closest to you. The strings are also color coded so that is another way to put them in order the colors coincide with each note. Brass is the low E or bass string that is located closest to you while playing, this is the thickest string. Red is the note A which comes directly after E (bass string). Black (ball end) is the note D which comes directly after A. Green (ball end) is the note G which is directly after the note D. Purple (ball end) is the note B which is directly after the note G and finally the skinniest string is the second E, the highest sounding string of the guitar and the color is Silver.
As far as order is concerned it doesn’t matter if you start with the high or low E. The most important thing to remember is that each has to be in the proper place and put into the hole on the tuning post that coincides with this note. So once all the strings are placed in bridge then the string must be pulled up the neck of the guitar and placed in the corresponding tuning post. These can be a bit tricky however it helps to remember that both of the E stings are the closest on the head of the guitar to the neck. Put another way, if you were to split the guitar in half (in your mind) there would be three strings that run from the bottom of the guitar at bridge up the neck...
