I learned from this post also.......I should have read it BEFORE I changed my strings yesterday!

The only thing I did wrong was to not have enough string on the posts.....I pulled the strings fairly tight before starting to wind them, so there is only maybe half or less of what's recommended. So I suspect I will experience some slippage....the guitar not staying in tune.

Oh well, I need the experience changing strings anyway! I have 4-5 guitars at any one time, I tend to buy/sell/trade so no one guitar gets a lot of use, so my string changing routine is pretty spread out.....maybe changing only once every year.....too much I know. I plan to correct that error.
