Re: strings keep breaking
How old are the strings, and does it happen only on certain strings all the time? If you keep the guitar tuned down for a long time of playing (probably at least a couple of weeks), then tune back up, the tension of the strings changes, but so does its strength. They are used to having a little more give in them when tuned down, and then tuning up makes them more brittle with your pick attack. Can you give more details if this happens alot, which strings specifically, and how old the strings are?
