Well best way to go is not to change that strings set for some time - until you break the strings !!! wink.gif Just bend like crazy and use a hard pick wink.gif

I've got a pretty good advice how to brake one. Bend it two whole steps 50 times agressively, and you're definitely on a good track to break you "virginity". wink.gif

Well, I hammered away for about four hours tonight. Pissed the wife off and woke the kids up, ruined two picks (broke one, wore huge grooves in the other) and still no luck. mad.gif On the plus side I made a TON of progress with my bends and slides (my fingers are raw). And I nailed a bunch of licks I've been working on and came up with a bunch more biggrin.gif And had a blast playin!!!!

Inspired by Ivan's new video I think I'm gonna change my strings and give my guitar a nice cleaning. My guitar has been such a trooper through all this and I want to make her feel special. Knowing my luck I'll break a string tuning rolleyes.gif

I break my high E on a weekly basis, always when going mad with bends and vibrato laugh.gif , The high B breaks regular too!

You may just have good quality strings, ive noticed Ernie Ball strings dont break so easy smile.gif

I guess I'm tryin to say that I would like to experience the feeling of snapping a string while I'm rocking out biggrin.gif I'm sure it's really not that big of a deal but, I wouldn't know. huh.gif


Nothing worse than breaking strings in the middle of rocking out imo I hate it when it happens really annoying especially with a FR double locking trem, I find just changing my strings on a regular basis means I dont break hardly any these days I used to break the A and D strings a fair bit but now its mainly the high E or B string thats if I break any at all in between string changes. smile.gif

i don't know if you mentioned it already, but what string size do you use ... 008 or 013 ? ... be careful if it's in the area of a 012/013 set ... you will most likely break everything else but not your strings .. first of all you fingers. Breaking strings is not that much fun to risk to be injured (.., but an experience of course).

I think the main question you have to ask yourself is WHY you wanna break strings? Don't you know it is NOT desireable to break them unsure.gif


For the tone? biggrin.gif

I never break strings really but they do go if you don't change them for months on end. It's better to have strings that never break than strings that break every week smile.gif

I've never broken a string while playing it, done it plenty of times when I was learning to tune up, though. biggrin.gif

It all went to hell a year and a half back biggrin.gif I lose them all the time now, although I think my mate started stealing mine when he realised I nabbed a few of his every once in a while, cant have enough picks when you're 15 odd miles away from the nearest guitar shop. laugh.gif
