op­ti­MiSe your tun­ing Sta­Bil­ity

Guitarist - - Feature -

Wal­ter Trout’s gui­tar tech An­drew Elt says prepa­ra­tion in ad­vance is key to get­ting rock-solid tun­ing sta­bil­ity, es­pe­cially be­fore a big gig. “I like to change strings at least a few hours be­fore the show. Change one string at a time – this means the neck is kept un­der even ten­sion. Take time to stretch in each fresh string by giv­ing it a lit­tle tug or two out­wards from the body, as if draw­ing a bow, then re­tun­ing to pitch. I like to use Big Bends Nut Sauce on the nut slots ev­ery now and then – makes bend­ing eas­ier and strings stay in tune bet­ter.”
