I tried to follow Aldrine's video, but got lost or confused when he anchors the string to the bridge. Now sure how the knots go, can anyone give some help and or pointers, or for that matter, direct me to another video..Thanks..

nothing special.. just try to knot them the best you can (C string knot can be tough) and stuff it as far underneath the bridge as you can.. pull on it and if it doesn't come out your golden..

if not, double knot!

You can use the examples from here (http://www.frets.com/FretsPages/Musician/Guitar/Setup/Classical/ClassicStr/classicstr1.html), although the pictures show a guitar, the same basic principles apply.

I like to thread my strings through a glass or metal bead then knot it. When tightened, the bead pulls against the bridge. My strings don't loop over the bridge, either, just go straight through the hole or the slot. I've read several interesting reflections on using string beads on classical guitars and the possible benefit they convey in terms of tone.
