Literally 5 minutes ago my favorite acoustic guitar snapped a string (they are very old, and I was messing around with some fun tunnings like Open D-flat and such) and it got me thinking that I have never learned to restring. I really don't wanna go to a store and pay to have some teenager restring my guitar so I figuire I need to learn.
1. I need a guide that is as detailed as possible and hopefully with pictures (and of couse free). I am not "hands on" by any means
2. I have no idea how to choose strings. I have an old acoustic Epiphone if that makes any difference and I heard the gauge needs to be medium at best or the guitar will be damaged.I also obviously want metal strings. How do I choose strings?
I wanna get this done as quickly as possible since I don't usually go a day without playing. Thanks in advance for the replies.
