so this was weird...

I just strung my high E wrong (sometimes I clip it too short and end up having to junk the string)...frustrating but no big deal.

so I open a new pack of strings to just to get the high E out (D'addario XLs) and what's missing? the high E...totally bizarre. I've gone through around 50 packages of D'addario strings (XLs for electric or Phosphor Bronze for acoustic) and never had this happen before...so weird.

so now the question when I go to GC soon (since I need to finish that restring for Sunday) is whether or not to get my usual D'addarios or go for the dirt-cheap GHS's at whatever price point they happen to be.

Some sets offer a second top e. Imagine if both were missing!

I most often break the G string (no jokes). I have no idea why. I never go into a shop and ask for a single g string though.

Odd. I've never had a pack of D'Addarios that was missing a string. I have had one pack with an extra string in it though. It was a g string, if I remember correctly. Go figure.

my problems are always with the g string, and always in church.

Never mutter "dang it, my g string broke" too close to a mic in a service though.

I totally second that! We had a not so good standing ovation in a youth service one time when that happened.

How do you pronounce D'addario?

I won't lie--I get Ernie Ball so I won't sound stupid trying to say it.

Imagine having somebody walk up to you and saying "Hey Andrew, I'm gonna have to buy you a new G-String because I broke yours" at a youth camp full of perverted teenagers and old preacher types...

True story.

I'm pretty sure the correct way to say it is like this: Dee-a-dairy-O
If that's not exact, it's at least really close.

Nope. It's Duh(with a quick pause) A-Dairy-O... but you say it fast, like the D'Urbervilles (as in Tess of the D'Urbervilles), so it sound more like Duh-Dairy-O...


And btw, Steve, ask if you can check to make sure they're all there...

You're thinking of changing string brands because 1 out of 50 packs is missing a string? Just email D'Addario. They'll probably send you a new pack for free.
