Hello i own an LP studio and about a week ago I decided to change my strings. They were getting quite rusty, but i must say that they still sounded quite nice. I bought DR Extra life Red devils .09 and strung the guitar using this method here:
After doing so the guitar sounds tinny and almost distorted when not plugged in. When plugged in, it sounds fine.
But an hour ago the second string just snapped while I was playing the guitar.
I didnt leave much string to wind up on the tuning thing as i hear the guitar might not stay in tune.
What could i be doing wrong? Use 0.10 guage?
