First of all you ddint specify what make of guitar we're talking about here.................If its a low end thing.......maybe the tuners are just not of high enough quality to keep it in tune...I've experienced this many moons ago with my first acoustic......the quality of the instrument is part of the eqauation. IF its a quality istrument then you are definitely not putting them on right.........tie them on. And by the way lighter strings will make your tuning more difficult or unstable not better
Well I had his guitar for a couple of months now (around december I think) and it is some random brand (Saga II [from Scarborough]) and I havent been having tuning trouble till now. And its annoying cause the only other guitar in my apartment is a classical one, which isnt good for practing solo/etc.
I took my acoustic guitar apart. Took the strings off, dismantled the bridge and the tuners. Still haven't put it back together and I really dont see the point. The frets are messed as hell. Then again it was a gift to someone else from years ago when the original game boy was new and it came from Sears (owch). The point is, that thing actually stayed in tune.
