Hey fellas,
well, it’s about time for this beginner to replace strings for the first time! So right now I have removed and changed the E string. The problem is that it sounds way too “metallic” (the tuning it’s ok, I checked with an electronic tuner). Is it just a matter of time that it moves back too a damper sound? First I didn’t dare to cut a lot of string, is it possible that this is the cause, having more “thinner string”? Tomorrow morning I’ll cut an extra inch or so.
Also, that black plastic thingie(protection?) that goes on the sides (you know what I mean) :) Should I remove it or it will come off with use?
Thanks for helping, good luck in life and in playing chords :)
