Post Guitar problem!
Hey guys,

Was just about to do a recording with my fireman but the E string keeps going out of tune?

Every time I d a bend on it I have to re-tune?

All other strings are fine!

Suggestions?

Cheers

Ant

Did this problem just pop up, or has it always been this way?

without actually seeing it, I guess for starters.....

1. Check to make sure all the mounting screws attaching the tuner to the headstock are tight.

2. Make sure there aren't too many winds going up the peg itself.

3. If these are brand new strings (just put on), it may take an hour (or so) of ferocious playing to get them stretched out.

4. Try putting a tiny dab of vaseline on the nut that houses your low E string.

I hope this helps. :?

shaving some graphite from a pencil also works.

I don't know how old the string is but if none of the things above works either you may just want to replace the E (or all of the) string(s); sometimes strings out of the package can have imperfections that cause this sort of thing, and obviously over time it gets worse.

Hey guys

sorry for not replying, have not been online for a while! Thanks for going to those efforts Rich, much appreciated, I noticed that there were a lot of coils around the peg! Re-strung it and it seems fine now :D
