Thread Name: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Subject: RE: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Murray - a few years back I sat in on a Dan Crary workshop at a bluegrass festival and heard him state that idea - put 'em on, tune 'em up and let them sit for 24 hours before playing. Of course he realized it's not always possible, but that was his recommendation if you have time.

Funny - that's about the only thing I remember from his workshop - that, and practicing in small increments of time on specific problem parts in a piece you're trying to learn.
