So I had trouble with a G string constantly going out of tune, particularly after a series of bends. Checked all what I knew, which wasn't much and then decided it was maybe the nut needed adjusting as this was the only thing left to try. As no tech was available, I went on line and saw suggestions to lubricate the nut obviously there was propriety lube, but not available here, others suggested graphite from a pencil which I deemed to messy. Finally a web page suggested Chapstick, so a quick and surreptitious search of the missus' make up bag later and a tiny dab applied to each groove. Result marvelous, absolutely fixed the problem and will now be part of my sting changing routine. I am sure this is old news to many if not all here, but led me to thinking what handy hints or tips do you wish you had known years ago in relation to either guitar maintenance or performing? Cheers Steve
