How can i get my strings more flexable on my jem7vwh

Hi

Is there a way to mode it or optimize so i can band the strings more easily?

maybe replace springs or something?

Build up the strength in your fingers mate.... the only way to bend strings easier is improving your technique

Good luck

get yourself a squash ball.keep squeezing it for a hour or 2 a day,this will strenthen your wrist and fingers.

You could change string guage to 9's or even lighter, if they're not already 9's. The best way about it, in the long run, is just to build up strength in your fingers.

Re: How can i get my strings more flexable on my jem7vwh

Thanx guys

TBH i play for a lot of time now (14 years)

im using 9's XL all the time

just though i can make it a bit softer so i can focus more on phrasing the fighting to stay in tone

sometime i feel like vibrating by 4 notes, kinda hard for me

so i though maybe i can optimize the guitar for better flexibility

but its cool

i can build my self some practice sessions for that problem


btw
is there types for springs? or are all spring the same? (im talking about the 3 springs at the back)

Tune your guitar down a half step. You will have to adjust the trem springs but it will do the trick.
