Subject: How long does it take you?
Something that has always bugged me about playing guitar is changing strings... it's always been a chore. And I can never make up my mind how much of the unwound strings to poke through the little hole, either.

So today I timed myself on a fairly relaxed six-string change, while having a cuppa and watching the World Cup draw.

Sixteen minutes. Not a time you'd like to take in the middle of a show, of course, but how quickly can you guys change a set of strings?
