I have an acoustic guitar that's currently strung with .012 gauge strings. I'd like to change that to lighter strings (around .010) and lower the action a bit. (This is my secondary acoustic, and I'd like to differentiate it from my main ax a bit more.)
One of the obstacles facing me is that this guitar tends to get thrown out of tune by heavy strumming, sometimes lasting only a song before it needs to be retuned. Will this tendency continue with lighter strings, or possibly worsen?
I'm planning to work on increasing the angle of the strings at the nut (by winding the stings differently) in an attempt to help the tuning problems. But is there anything else I can do while upgrading the guitar's setup?
The guitar is a Seagull "Grand" parlor acoustic.
