Do one at a time so you can match the others. Knot each end – double knot or figure 8 knot for smaller G and A strings to prevent slipping through the slots on the bridge. Needle nose plyers work well for pulling knots tight and wire cutters or scissors for trimming. Pass twice through hole in tuner and adjust slack such that you have at least 3 to 4 full turns on the peg (when up to pitch) with the string winding toward the head stock supporting the peg. Try not to exceed pitch when tuning and remember all new strings will stretch for a few days requiring constant tuning until they stabilize.
