|Sorry, toksik, I know nowt about Opera. But don't hurt them, please?|
This might be a stupid question, but... Can someone tell me if this heat we're enduring can affect the steel strings on my acoustic guitar? I don't have, nor know how to use those little tuning gizmo's, so I tune by ear and there's therefore every chance it's me not the strings*. But I swear every time I get them in tune, they go out of tune again after only a few strums, and they're not new or particularly old strings either (and they were fine yesterday).
So, is it more likely to be me or the strings? Either way, I promise I'll restrain myself from moaning again in the 'The thing I hate most about the heat is...' thread.
*I mean, steel string guitars are played all over the world (in warm and cold climates), and most music venues and stages can get damn hot (what with all those lights an'all), so I figure this would be a huge problem if one's guitar strings kept (erm) warping, non?
