Gather Your Tools:
Grab new strings, wire cutters, a peg winder, tuner, and a clean cloth.
Loosen Old Strings:
Use the peg winder to loosen the old strings until they're floppy.
Remove Old Strings:
Take off the old strings carefully, unwinding from the tuning pegs.
Wipe your guitar clean with a cloth to get rid of dirt.
Start with Thickest String:
Attach the ball end of the new string to the bridge (acoustic) or tailpiece (electric).
Thread and Secure:
Pull the other end through the tuning peg, wind it a few times with the peg winder, and make sure it's snug.
Guide through Nut:
Thread the string through the nut slot, keeping it in place.
