Thread Name: Guitar string tension v gauge
Subject: RE: Guitar string tension v guage
We had a similar discussion here a few years ago, but I haven't searched for it. From memory one of us unearthed a site that calculated the tension for various string lengths, frequencies and weights. There was some rough rule of thumb for wound strings.

I remember using it before converting a six string guitar to an eight string bouzouki.
