Restringing Classical Guitars

This is another Guitarise episode, explaining tips and tricks you can use for changing strings on your classical guitar. A few short tips from the lesson:

  1. Protect your guitar by taping a thick piece of paper or a bookmark onto the bridge
  2. Consider changing strings one by one to avoid any tuning problems
  3. Avoid making knots at the tuning peg’s roller end
  4. Use a string winder (without a screw in the middle) to save time turning the pegs
  5. Use a nail clipper to trim the new strings’ ends
