Hey guys...

I'm planning to restring my Edge Pro for the first time today, as i have a performance in a week, and want to get the new strings stretched in. It will be the first time i do this, and i have a few worries. First of all, i know about the locking part on the bridge, and that's fine, it its the tuning pegs I'm worried about. How do you get a nice even amount of loops around the peg? I would be so appreciative if you have videos, pictures or even an explanation, because I've restrung a few fixed bridge guitars, and they haven't turned out too well...

Second is how to give the strings a good stretch. I know since they are new they will go out of tune quite a lot until they are stretched in, but what is the best way to minimise this? Any things you should do before/after putting them on?

Thanks greatly to anyone who can help.
