In today's music scene, there are probably more genres that use electric guitars than those that don't. One of the things that make the instrument so adaptable is the ability to change its strings. The effects that different strings have on the guitar's sound allow it to fit in with virtually any backup band. When you're looking for replacements, sometimes a single electric guitar string is all you need. That's especially true of the thinner, more fragile strings, especially if you use a tuning method that puts them under a lot of tension. If you're a professional touring musician, you might even buy multiple spares for a string that often needs to be replaced in order to ensure you're well-prepared on the road.
