    Hello, I am learning to play the guitar. I broke one of my strings, so I want to just buy a whole new set and replace them. Problem is, I don't know what kind to buy. This is the guitar that I have:

    Please find a set of strings on Amazon.com that will work with that guitar.

    Go to your local guitar shop, and ask there be quicker/easier.
    I would recommend the strings i use, but i use extra thick ones cause im always playing in drop b and i find they dont snap as easily.

    Well, there really is no music shop near me. I am also getting the strings from free on Amazon.com from a free gift card I got from ezyrewards. Would you recommend any certain brand?

    then those strings should be perfectly fine, i was just waiting for you to say something like slipknot.
    1. not good to start with, some of their riffs can get really compilcated.
    2. they use a ---- load of effects your mind wont be able to grasp with yet :P
    3. they use a lot of weird tunnings that you wont know how to tune to yet

    Heres my warlock, that im about to sell cause im not really an elec guy anymore. Bass is my #1 now, got 3elecs i dont use :P
