I put some new strings on my ol' classical nylon string and I'm wondering if it makes a diff how often you retension them. They drop out of tune pretty quick, is it better to let them settle between retensionings or does it make any diff? Just wondering if you can overdo the retensioning if you do it too often...may be a dumb question, but I had to ask...
Stretching new strings

Classical strings are damn near elastic. It takes a while. They almost need to dry out a bit. The tuners sometimes are to blame on classical guitars. Did you wind them and are they overlapping a lot? You should have one layer of string wrapped around the post. If you go over, they can slip too. That said lightly stretch. Don't go too crazy.
