    • Insert the thick end of the string into the top of the bridge and thread it through until about 3 to 4 inches of the string stick out of the bottom.

    • Wrap the short end of the string around the long end of the string, creating a loop.

    • Pass the short end of the string through the loop (2 or 3 times for thick strings, 3 or 4 times for thin strings). Make sure the final pass leaves the string underneath the bridge.

    • Turn the tuning knob in a clock-wise motion to tighten the string until the string makes a clear sound when plucked.

    • As you tighten the string, be sure to hold the string with your free hand until the string stays tight on its own. This will keep the knot from loosening.

    • As the string winds around the tuning peg, make sure that the string passes over the loose end from the knot at least once. This will prevent "slipping" (detuning) during tuning and will help keep the knot tight.

    • Before moving on, compare your work to the image provided. If the head of your guitar does not resemble the guitar in the image, go back to steps 3 and 4.

    • The E strings should be facing outwards (or "away from the body") and the rest of the strings should be facing inwards (or "toward the body").

    • Check that strings are properly set in the notches of the nut of the guitar. The "nut" is the white bar just below the head of the guitar.

    • You are ready to tune your guitar! Classical guitar strings may "slip" or detune. It may take 4 or more rounds of tuning before the new strings stop slipping.
