    I thought that I was going to be the judge any jury for this video, but
    this guy showed me something that I’d never thought of before. Winding the
    string on the peg, before inserting it into the hole ! Ingenious, this will
    save me a lot of time from now on. Also I always put all of the winds under
    the string insertion hole in the peg, but he’s doing it without the sloppy
    trying to get it over the peg shit. BTW This guitar is my guitar. That is
    to say, that I have a Taylor 114CE, like shown in the video. No matter how
    many windings that you put on the peg, it will still slip. Be sure that all
    windings come off the pegs ON THE INSIDE, BETWEEN THE TOP AND BOTTOM PEGS.
    As you play, and tune your guitar tuning super fast, you will realize why
    the string windings ALWAYS are wound the same. String slip is a real
    problem, for some reason I can’t explain, it seems more prevalent stringing
    acoustics. But I break a string every night. Now let me tell you a little
    secret. You are probably breaking the e or b string. They almost always
    break. on my Taylor, on the bridge. This means that most of the string is
    still available. Shake out the brass eyelet or use another from a broken
    string, they’re all the same size and use a vise or two vise grips and
    insert the broken string through the eyelet and if the eyelet is not in a
    vise then grasp it with the one vise grips. Then with the string through
    the eyelet bend it as much as possible that you can with your fingers. Then
    take the second vise grip and try and lock on to BOTH of the strings. Then
    simply turn, but pull as forcefully as you can as you are turning. You can
    tell when the string is wound onto the eyelet. Don’t over do it. It’s just
    not necessary. Now you have another E or B string and you didn’t need to go
    anywhere or buy anything. Obviously if you want to use this technique,
    DON’T CUT OFF THE STRING ! If you are thinking, oh the string has “kinks”
    in it, it will surely break. NO IT WON’T. There is a big difference between
    a string that is “bent” and a string that is kinked. A guitar string is
    almost NEVER KINKED! Happy playing. S

    MyAlternateMe Says:

    WRONG!. THAT MUST BE HARD TO DO ON THE BASS STRINGS, YOU JUST GOT TO STICK
    THE STRING THROUGH AND LEAVE SOME SLACK !!!! AT THE NUT AND THEN TURN THE
    TUNING PEG THE ” RIGHT: WAY TO TIGHTEN IT, (YOULL FIGURE IT OUT BY TRIAL
    AND ERROR IT CAN ONLY BE ONE WAY OR ANOTHER TO TURN) AND THEN IT STARTS
    WRAPPING AROUND AND SLOWLY THE SLACK YOU LEFT BEHIND STARTS DISAPPEARING
    AND THEN YOURE ALL GOOD. LET THE STRING GO UNDER ONCE AND THEN OVER THE
    REST OF THE WAY. YOULL GET IT EVENTUALLY. / youll have to tune the strings
    a couple times then itll stay in perfect tune and presto new stringys!
