As fairly new to guitars I have a question. I recently read a post saying that you should always coil your cables after you are done playing. Does that have any merit?
I have a short cable(3 meters) in my bedroom rig which more or less just lies there after I am done playing and I was wondering if I was shortening the cable's lifespan by doing that.
I did a quick google and forum seach and didn't find anything at first, so I hope the seasoned guitarist here can help me.
if i had to make a guess, the coiling is to make sure you dont break it in some way. mine just lies on the floor of my room. (heh

Yea your not going to damage your cables if you just let them lie around. Most of the time the thing that fails on a cable is around the input, and that just happens with use. So honestly its not going to do much, but I guess it wouldnt hurt to coil them up if it makes you feel better about it.
