Subject: RE: guitars: OO Martin Sing Out!
Mag ... I've been playing for 30+ years and only this past Fall have learned to change my strings properly. The reason I never did it and would bat my eyes as some gnarly geetarpicker to change them for me, is because I'm ambidextrous, although I wasn't aware that was causing the problem. Picture this ... the top three strings on the inside of the tuners and the bottom three strings on the outside of the tuners. Now, I change one string at a time and don't take it out of the tuner until I'm ready to thread the new string through. It works and takes me less than an hour to restring.
