Hi all. Enjoying all the info this site offers.

I'm looking for opinions on whether I should loosen my strings after I play. I play 1/2 to one hour per day and wonder if this would save the life of the strings.

Thanks

waste of time as you'd lose tone with the strings before they break most of the time anyway

no you shouldnt. for reason stated and because it's a good idea to keep tension on ur neck.

Your neck can actually warp if the tension of the strings is not on it.

Good advice. However, you should always slacken your strings when taking your guitar on a plane.
