    Here is a excel spread sheet, modified from Alex's spread sheet
    (http://www.sevenstring.org/threads/...for-7s-and-8s-it-does-fan-fretted-too.100074/)

    Changes and limitations Alex's,
    - continuous variation in gauge values are possible(to cover non-D'addario and new D'addario string gauges, e.g. 0.095)
    - As tension is calculated based on polynomial regression and data of D'addario strings, there would be errors. However, it should be better than none.
    - specifying wound/plain string is done by 'wound' column(wound=1 if wound, wound=1 otherwise)
    - tension in kg is added.

    Hope this helps.

    Did you mean to write wound=0 if otherwise? You've got wound=1 for both cases written there :confused:
