    I know this is probably a stupid question, but how to I make my strings tighter? I believe it is called action.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    i'm not sure i understand the question correctly but action has more to do with the distance between the string and the frets. higher action helps eliminate string/fret buzz or click. not sure if it affects tightness though, it might. from some of the threads i've read, some brands of strings feel stiffer than others. heavier guaged strings might feel stiffer or tighter than lighter guaged too.
