    Hi everybody,

    I am a beginner and had tried stringing the guitar. The guitar goes out of tune really quickly within 15 minutes or so. Especially the 1st 3 strings which are nylon. Could someone please tell me what I could do. I think the nylon is slipping off the tuning pegs. Also, the sixth string detunes after a short time although it seems like it's tightened enough.

    Thank you.

    15 minutes is really too quick..may be you are strumming very hard.. what kind of pick you are using?

    New strings have to stretch out. It takes a couple of days. I hope you strung it properly at the machine head.

    Stretch the strings by pulling them away from the neck.
