How to Replace Guitar Strings!

If Jake had a nickel for every guitar string he's changed, it would be a lot of nickels. Let him show you how the pros do it!

Another good video. Thank you!
I find that it’s the simple tricks and techniques, as you explain here, that really help us everyday musicians the most. You did not mention stretching the strings after tuning, and then re-tune again after stretching. Do you not recommend stretching the strings with the winder tool?

Very nice video and explanation. I agree with removing only one string at a time unless there is some reason to remove them all. I also pull each new string up a bit a few times to lessen stretching and keep them in tune faster. I enjoy all the tech videos.

Thanks Jake. I didn’t know about the ball going past the bridge plate. I’ve always had trouble with that. Can you e-mail me please and tell me if you stretch the strings at all before final tuning? I’ve always been told that you should. Thanks!
