A Surefire Stringing Method

By Shawn Reese

This is the only way to string a guitar that works for me: Wound guitar strings only need two wraps around the tuning post, and plain wire needs between two and three wraps. Put the string through the post hole, bend the excess end on a 90-degree angle opposite the winding direction, and then wind to pitch. Pull the string hard off of fretboard at the 7th, 12th, and 15th frets, and then retune. Repeat the pulling and retuning, and you’re done. It will stay in tune. No special tucks or knots, which make it impossible to keep even string tension. It took me years to discover this!
