Ok, now im still new on the guitar but i play all day long probably 6-8 hours a day everyday (i know i have no life) so i know playing this much isnt normal but normal string replacement is said to be 1 month if u play a decent amount... but how often should i replace my strings since i play my life away?

+1. Why replace your strings a month after even if it is still in good condition anyway?

I usually replace mine every 3 weeks (I play too hard... I like the harshness), because they break... But it just depends on what strings you're using, how hard/fast you play, and how much you play.

I've had the same pack of strings on for the last 3 months now (11-54's), because they're so thick and I haven't had much time to play recently... Just depends, but with normal old strings, I'd just say a month is average.
