Strings in guitar


String is the heart of a guitar. There are several kinds of string.. The nylon string is most widely used. Nylon strings are found on classic guitars. This type of string has a soft, mellow tone and is easy on the fingers. This is a very good string with which to begin. Certain problems occur with tuning a new set of nylon strings. When they are new, they stretch quite a bit and therefore need frequent tuning. They settle down after a day or so. The tone of nylon strings is brought out best by thin, aged woods ,usually rosewood back and sides and spruce top. Nylon strings lose some of their vibrancy when put on a guitar made originally for metal strings. The wood on this type of guitar is thicker and stronger to take the stress of metal strings.
