Hey all, I recently read a "proper" account of how to change strings on a bass or guitar, and it mentioned that it was a good idea to change one string at a time, so as not to put undue strain on the neck with drastically changing tension. I was wondering just how important this is? I've changed strings once each on guitar and bass, and both times I took the whole old set off, gave the neck a good clean, then put the new set on. It seemed fine. But I've recently bought a new bass, really nice, and I obviously don't want to do anything that's going to be harmful to it. So if I change one string at a time, am I going to do damage? Thanks in advance.
