Hi fellow pickers, I am brand new to the forum, I am probably one of the oldest members (Age wise) well past the sell by date at 65. I spent over 40 years as a pro and picked up a few tips along the way... I am still learning new things and no doubt will go on doing so.
Here is a tip I would like to share with you.
If you do any amount of string bending you will know that it is good for the bent string to return to pitch without delay however minute.
I would sometimes get slight string hang just marginally when bending when I was playing , I then came up with the following idea.
Take a pencil and rub it across the nut backwards and forwards so that the graphite comes off and rests in the nut slots. If you like you can also hold the string out of the nut and apply the pencil, this can also be done at the bridge. I have even rubbed my strings with the pencil enhancing ease of sliding. Sure your fingers may get a little black but it comes off easy with soap and water.
The great thing is you only need to carry a pencil in your gig bag to apply whenever needed. If you are a bender you will definitely notice improvement.
Keep on Pickin' & Grinnin'
