    Hello everyone and thank you don for the first request. But before I get to that I did just upload a YouTube vid on changing guitar string properly and talking about the basic hardware so you guys understand a little bit more of exactly what you are wielding. Now I would post a link but apparently I can't because I'm not an approved member. So go on YouTube, search Broke Chronicles, or you can just search my name Joey Spirito, and it should pop up =] PLEASE view comment and subscribe. Help me so I can help out all of you and spread as much word around with just a couple of vids. As for you don my next vid will be exactly what you just asked and I'll try to record it tomorrow since I have the day off. Oh and please be understanding of the vid quality. I'm not loaded...at all. I just have a 4s to record on and no amp. I'm upgrading as soon as I can so just bare with it and things will get better. Thank you guys and enjoy the holidays!

      oh don I was thinking about what you said about the tension for your strings. now it would make sense if your going from thicker or thinner strings to whatever new strings but if if you have 9 and staying at 9 ( the smallest string gauge size) then no you do not need to adjust anything. But remember changing strings on a FR model does require you to cut off the ball at the end because your FR will clamp onto the strings at the end. I hope that helps you a little more.

      It sounds like someone is trying to get some extra cash out of you. Slash changed his strings from reg slinkies to the cobalts if that tells you anything. The cobalt element is more magnetized and reacts better with the magnets in your pickups to give you a louder and clearer sound. YEAH SCIENCE!

      Great piece brother.  Changing strings is something that always scares me.  For some reason I am convinced I am going to do some irreversable damage to my guitar. That video makes it seem pretty simple.  I do have a question.  I have been using the Ernie Ball regualr slinky's.  Do the Cobalts make that much difference.  I was thinking about trying them on my ESP with a Floyd Rose but my guy at my local shop said he would have to change the tension in the springs if I went witht he cobalts and I wasn't even sure what he meant by that or if it was a good thing or a bad thing?
