Anyone have a problem with this too? Really need tips on this. My thumb will get hot and sweaty and will stick to the back, and the friction really screws over my power chords and bar chords. My fingers will also sort of stick to the strings. Getting my hand up and down the fretboard becomes insanely tiring, and my whole hand will start hurting.

"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use." -- Stevie Ray Vaughan

"Anybody can play. The note is only 20 percent. The attitude of the motherfucker who plays it is 80 percent." -- Miles Davis

Make sure to wash your hands thoroughly before playing, that really helps for me, and I have pretty acidic fingers.

keep a hand towel nearby and dry your hands when they start to sweat. you could even use a little rubbing alcohol.

I just looked in my Oxford English Dictionary and under "Acoustic Guitar", there was your Avatar and an email address!

Two things I always have close by on a gig is small bottle of hand gel/sanitizer and a small hand towel. I recommend cheap Walmart brand towels and dollar store bottles of hand sanitizer. I could be wrong but I never noticed any residue of the hand gel affecting my strings but since I change strings fairly regularly it doesn't seem noticeable in the short run. I make sure my hands air dry completely before touching anything but that only takes 10 seconds. I'm someone who sweats and I play a lot of outdoor gigs in the summer so it's even worse this time of year.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.
