Iíve had my little 8-stringed friend for about a year, and I figure he is WAY over due for a new set of strings. So, I went to the local music shop, and all I found were Guitar and Bass strings. So... what now? Should I ask the employees to help me find them (I was in a rush, and didnít ask for help) or should I use guitar strings. And if that be the case, which guitar strings? This store has a few mandolins, so I can only assume the would have strings.
I know I have to use my gutiar tuner to tune my mandolin, will I have to use Gutiar strings to string my Mando?
Why the heck are guitars so popular anyways!!!!!??
