Preparing - strings PDF Print E-mail

* Put new strings on the day before. Stretch them out to ensure stable tuning, and be sure to bring extras.

* Make sure your instrument is set up properly. Set intonation, make sure tone and volume controls, etc. are all working.

* Make sure your amplification, effects, DI box, etc. are all in working order, and that you bring extra patch cords, picks, speaker cable, etc.

* Have a variety of tonal options at your disposal.  If you have different guitars, different amps, different effects, etc., sometimes that magical combination is discovered in the studio.
