So I just got my strings a while ago for my shamisen and a complete beginner. I was wondering about how to take care of the strings?
The strings need to still stretch and I followed the bachido video, with how they use your fingers to stretch in manually. I still have problems with the strings changing tone, but I know that’s because they are still new. After finishing pracricing my measures I destring my shamisen all the time because I don’t want to damage the string is my thought.
My question is,
So its been maybe 4 days, I decided to not to destring my shamisen and just keep the strings one, but of course, I took the Koma off when I am done practicing. Is this fine to keep the strings on all the time, or is this bad?
