Dan, I can't stand it - think I need a third hand!
But I guess it eventually has to be done, so we get the glasses, and......
Maybe I can hire a roadie - the big shots get strings changed In Between songs!!

I started Tying my strings on and I can't believe how much easier and how much faster it is. It takes less turns and the very first wrap holds the string on all by itself. Give it a try and see what you think. Best of luck Gary C

i know a 3rd hand i would help., i am thinking about making the string shorter 1st. and thread into the peg 1st., that should help.

the results are always worth the time it takes tho

I HATE changing strings -- have to psyche myself up to do it. It's not difficult, I just don't like to do it but I always like the sound of my banjo after I've changed strings-- really pops and sounds great.

i did find i much much prefer Light Gauge (the sound, and for pull offs, and hammer-ons, bending twistind, etc
Ralph Stanley really gets a high [pitch with his "strangs")
He plays really close to der Bridge. He has some remarkable rhytyms.

Changing strings frustrates me. One day I nearly went out and bought a new banjo rather than mess with the strings.
