GuitarTuna Blog: The 4 Strings You Didn’t Know You Needed
When I started playing guitar, I was a big fan of Slash. His riffs were so cool, his solos so powerful. I remember thinking that he must be the best guitarist in the world. In my mind, he was untouchable.
Of course, as time went by and I started discovering other guitarists like Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, I realized that there are many other guitarists out there who are just as good or even better than Slash (sorry Slash fans!). These guys made me realize that becoming a great guitarist wasn’t about learning a few cool riffs and solos but about mastering the fundamentals of the instrument. If you can play fast scales and arpeggios with ease or have complete command over your vibrato then you are on the right track to becoming a great guitarist. But what if you could get a little help?
What if you could use something like… strings?
That’s right. It turns out that strings make all the difference!

If you’re a professional guitarist, then you know how important it is to have the proper strings installed on each of your guitars. Those three little pieces of metal can make or break your career, which is why you should only use the best. You’ve heard of Slinky Strings — we know you have. You’ve probably even used them at some point in your career. Slinky Strings are good, but they aren’t good enough for the discerning guitarist. Slinky Strings are for the amateurs; if you want to impress your fans, then you need Guitartuna Strings on your guitar.

Today I want to talk about the two most important things you should know about your guitar strings, and how they relate to your instrument.
The first thing is tension. When you string up a new set of strings, they’re going to pull against the neck of your guitar and cause a little bit of forward bow, or concave curvature to the neck. This is normal, but what you may not know is that the higher the tension of the strings, the more bow they will create.
The second thing is scale length. The scale length of any given guitar refers to the length between the bridge and nut; in other words, it’s how long it takes for a string to vibrate from one end to the other before it starts vibrating again.
The two factors at play here are scale length and tension. Each guitar has its own unique combination of these two factors that determine its overall feel, which is why no two guitars are ever exactly alike.
