Have a question:
I've been recently playing a song by Andy Mckee - For My Father.
You can check it out here if you want:
It's tuned kind of weird. The 2nd thickest string is tuned 1.5 steps higher to a C.
Now, I've heard some mixed feedback about doing that.
1) Don't leave that string tuned high for too long because it will damage your guitar neck -- essentially causing it to warp.
2) Leave it tuned high because constant tuning is bad for the string and may cause snappage alot earlier (shorter string life span).
So I was wondering, since it's just that one string that I'm tuning high (all others low) -- is it alright for me to leave that string tuned high? Will it really cause warpage? I suppose it's a tradeoff between constantly tuning ur guitar vs leaving it tuned high and risk neck warpage.
Anyone out there who is an expert on guitars can enlighten me on what I should do?
I really hate to tune it back and forth every time I decide to play and I'm too lazy to constantly restring my guitars if the string does indeed snap.
