It always could be worse! Once my poor old classic guitar just "exploded". The glue that held the bridge stopped working, and all of a sudden all the strings with the bridge struck a wall, half meter from my head:D I couldn't play at all for a whole week:/ Just be sure to order additional set for such emergencies;)

If its usually your high E that breaks you can buy a pack of just 009's or 010's.
It'll come with 5 or 10 of them.

I hate it when that happens to me, and it happens all the time. You would have thought I would have learnt my lesson by now and bought a few packs in laugh.gif

Don't worry mate, just play without high E string. I was a coupe of times in those situations where I didn't have some strings, and believe me it really did good for me - in those situations you start to think differently about the licks you play, find different positions, and start focusing on a more horizontal approach when playing.

OMG that's a pretty scary story though it could always be worse... it could have struck your head! or your TV or computer instead of the wall... I would have a heart attack if something like that happenned to me for sure laugh.gif, biggest fright I ever got with guitar was once while I was changing strings, one was loose on the tuning peg and it went off and slashed my face really close to the eye. Since then I always wear glasses when doing that.

To the original poster: buy a BUNCH of string sets! You'll use them all eventually smile.gif

We can only say, next time get some more sets! Also make a spare set if you happen to replace your E string, instead of snapping it. Maybe do some Theory lessons!
