Hoi,

This really isn't a major thing but I usually have quite long sessions when playing the guitar and very often my left armpit (the fretting hand) starts to sweat and eventually to smell (not like death but given that I just came from shower, it should smell a bit better). I honestly never have similar issues with my right armpit, never, unless I've been doing something extremely demanding, sports...

It doesn't always happen but when it does it's extremely annoying because I will have to take a shower everytime after it. I wonder if this is one of the reasons so many guitarists like Slash have been playing without a shirt so often? Lol

Nowadays I just play without a shirt because there's no point for me to first wear a shirt and smudge it with my left armpit, then go to shower and then take a new shirt.

Has anyone else had similar problems at all?

trim your armpit hair down to a low bush and then moisturise it

Hold your arm out a bit more
buy that special rollon deodorant that feels like your skin is on fire
do what tg said
learn lapstyle
just jerk off instead

Trimming helps a bit but still after a day or too it really makes no difference..

And then again usually I use a hugo roll-on but I would have to apply it a lot to prevent sweating. And then there are those roll-ons that do work and prevent from sweating but they don't smell that good so I tend to avoid them.

Try an anti-perspirant spray? Take breaks more often?

Build up the strength in your left arm by using it for masturbating.

Alternatively, leave the shower for after playing.

Rub icy hot on it

Cut off your arms so you no longer have arm pits.

I get the same thing but only with my right arm, and only when performing. doesn't matter which/how much deodorant I use either.

you'd be on stage, so only the people you know would be around you, so you put the antiperspirant on for the stage and when you get off put the perfumed one on.

Shave your armpit hair right down to nothing.

Hairs trap bad smells and also antiperspirant sticks to your naked skin a lot better.

I was going to suggest that.
Sounds like a good idea to me.
Get one of the smaller ones that would fit your armpit area better though.

your location suggests that you have a lot of experience with the subject matter

just give up guitar, it's not worth it.


Armpit sweat can really fuck up your groove, maybe try playing the recorder, or the flute.

seriously lol sweat is only gross if you have bad hygiene. No one cares that there are sweat patches on your shirt unless you wear that shirt daily without washing it or something
