Restringing Tips

I know how to restring fine, but when i lap the string around the machine heads or tuners, they always seem to overlap each other. Anyone got any kind of tips for this.

Re: Restringing Tips

If you take up a little more slack before you start winding that might help.
I like to leave just enough to go around the post three or so times.
That way, it's kind of easy to use your finger to just kinda guide the string below itself on each concurrent turn of the post.
