I have just started lessons a few weeks ago and am ready to change strings on my electric. Can someone please give me a few pointers and guidelines on changing strings? Thanks!

Take a look at the "changing strings" page on my web site below and see if that helps. If not just do a search on the web for "changing strings" and you will find a wealth of information.

stretch them out when your done, make sure the saddles and nut are clean of any grime.
