Hey guys..

So, yeah the title tells most of the story..

So it's an Ibanez acoustic fitted with a couple of regular medium sized strings (like the ones that were on it when i got it from the store)

I get told totally different things from different people from different people, and i was just hoping that maybe I could get a good answer from you brilliant musicians out here on these forums

so, the important info here... How much do i play a day??

It varies of course, but usually and hour or more a day. I do not sweat very often from player so that is another factor you can eliminate..

I do plan to start doing gigs in a few months and that would probably mean that i actually would be sweating when playing so maybe you guys could mention something about that too?

Is it once a month, or twice? or maybe 2-3 months or even more seldom.

Please please enlighten me Let the discussion begin


FORGOT TO SAY!! I USE STEEL STRINGS!!!

Whenever I guess. Sometimes I do it a couple times a month, sometimes I go 6 months between, it really depends on how quick the strings get too rough for my fingers, how bored I am, and whether or not I'm doing intensive guitar work. There really is no proper time, just do it whenever it feels right.

It really depends on if your recording or not.

during the summer i see myself changing once a month. during non-summer months i can stretch to 1.5~2 months before i change strings.

you practically started an identical thread just with a poll.

you got answers there. at least i provided an answer. and you really can't wait a few hours before reposting? don't bump threads so often especially to or repeat a post.

you were directed to the acoustic forum. it is in that other thread go in there.

sting life varies. your tolerance, the environment you play/store it. and the chemistry of your skin.
