Greetings, I am a new member. Thank you for welcoming me. Question: in a pinch, May one substitute an A string for a broken D string? Thank you. L

Not really (apart from it feeling weird as it is too thick a string for a D string, tension would be very high to be at the proper pitch). Strings are generally very cheap - just go to your local guitar shop and buy a new set; or if they sell individual strings- a new D string.

Thanks, guitarrista. I usually get them from Strings by Mail, but was leaving for a conference the next day. Obviously, it's a good idea to have spares available at all times!
