How to change atrings? Tune the String: Use a chromatic tuner as a guide to tighten the string to the right pitch. Be careful not to over tighten the string or it might break. If you change another string on the instrument you will have to re-tune this string. Also, brand new strings take a little while to hold tuning because they have to stretch. So after you change strings, it will be necessary to continuously re-tune the instrument until it holds its tuning. Usually this takes about one week after you change strings.
