Thread Name: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Subject: RE: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Tune them a tone high and then lower them to just below what you want, and tune them up again. With nylon strings I think that's essential, if you don't want to have to constantly be retuning the whole night. With steel strings a semi-tone is enough (and not even thta for the bass strings)
