if you hold the string at the peghead and then lift the string up about a handspan. that will give you around 2 turn and I always go one above and one below. Trick is you don't need as many turns on the string as most people think and having to many mean it can slip a tiny bit and create tuning instablility. Also lubricate your nut.



Usually do the same smile.gif Sometimes if the string to nut angle is poor, and nut slots are shallow, You need to get some extra rounds, to increase the angle
