GUEST,Strollin' Johnny Pre-stretching guitar strings (41) RE: Pre-stretching guitar strings 22 Jan 04

I use the 'Whang 'Em On, Tune 'Em Up, Pull 'Em As Hard As You Can Over The 12th Fret And Tune 'Em Up Again' technique. Doesn't seem to do any harm and the guitar's playable virtually straight away.

No doubt some highly-educated Professor of Quantum Physics will post an explanation as to why I shouldn't do this, but I've seen lots of VERY superior big-name players do it - if it's good enough for them.........
