Introduction

This guide is intended to help users through the process of fixing broken or worn out violin strings. A violin has four strings: E, A, D, & G. The order of the strings from left to right is G, D, A, & E. The G string is the deepest pitched string and the E is the highest pitched string. The purpose of this guide is to enable violin players to restring their violin on their own instead of having it done at a music store.
