John Dreyer from Fender University explains how to change strings on an electric guitar.

This video offers a few different ways to tune your electric guitar using on-line tools from Fender.com and other classic methods.


Most players should plan on changing strings about once every 3 months or 100 hours of practice—whichever comes first. Your strings may last twice this long, or more. They will continue to wear and you can continue to use them, as long as they don’t break.  Your music teacher is the one best to advise you. We offer a free trial electric guitar lesson, with group music classes and private music lessons at our music center or online.  We provide music lessons to students of all ages and skill levels in Citrus Heights and surrounding areas, including Fair OaksOrangevaleRosevilleNorth Highlands, and Sacramento.
