Quick Music Fact...Changing Strings

When changing a string or strings.something that helps with staying in tune later is,when you thread the string through the eyelet of the tuning gear post,snip it two gears down(this creates 2 to 3 windings around the post once wound),then bend it at the eyelet to a 90 degree angle.This will help lock the string once tightened up.And as you are winding the string,pull up on the string,keeping it tight as you wind.And notice in the picture,the string winding ends up below the eyelet,not above!.Of course,if you have a lock down system,there is no need for this!
