A simple tuning question...
Hey all, new here, great site and all. Anyway, I need some pointers here. I live in brasil and strings aren't really cheap here. It goes for around R$20 each D'Addario set here. I recently had a high E string broke, and since the whole set was a bit old, I went and replaced all the strings 3 days ago. But then today I hit the damn E string with a 1 and half bend and bang! The string broke. I can't go out right now to buy a new set, or a replacement (I'm really low on money).
I just wanted to know, if you guys know the tension the B string tuned to high E would do? It tuned ok, but I'm worried with the bridge here (I have a Fender Stratocaster, Normal tremolo system). Is it going to be ok? Or should I tune it down and wait till I can get a replacement??
Thanks in advance!
