here is a question. I have this cheap classical guitar. I can only tune it between C# and D and if I try and go any further it starts to break strings. Why???? :(

Melodic Dreamer: Are you trying to tune the guitar an octave too high? Strings don't break that easily. Or maybe there is a sharp part in the guitar that cuts the string?

Aaaah... the "let's hear what it sounds like if I tune the whole damn thing an octave higher" -experiment. Yep, I did that when I was young and had no clue. Miraculously enough, I learned my lesson after the first string broke. :lol:

that's weird...
The only chance for me to break a high E string is when I grab the guitar by its whammy bar, like Steve did in his videos.
