Changing Guitar Strings

Changing guitar strings is very important, because it is where the notes of our guitar comes from. There are actually tons of guitar strings available these days, and they only differs in very little tonalities. Choosing the guitar strings will depend on the player, and we are free to explore.

Anyway, when is the right time we need to change guitar strings? Actually, it is very simple. If you notice the difference on the intonation on any fret, then that is the time you can change them. Others actually only change their guitar strings if they are not already playable and full of nasty rust. There are times that out of tuned strings can be cured by adjusting the saddles of the guitar. However, if the guitar cannot identify the notes anymore, then change the strings.

There are two ways on how you can identify the out of tune guitar strings. First of all, is by hearing the notes. If you are already a good guitar player and you have played for a very long time, then it is easy for you to notice that. You can as well use a tuner, and most tuner nowadays can determine the intonation of each strings.

There are also different timelines on when you will change the strings. Basically, it all depends on how the guitar is played, whether, etc. There times that strings can be replaced as fast as one week or two days, or maybe shorter. There are as well times that you will need to replace them after two months or so. It depends, and it is only a matter of having a good hearing.
