i bought dimebag darrel strings a like about a month ago and they were all shny and smooth now they are black and rough why is this and it interferes in playing?

do your fingers sweat a lot? this happens to me too, but i got sweatie fingers, im not sure if this is the actual reason, but makes sense to me ...

It's because of the grime and dirt and sweat and the sort from your fingers. Try wiping down your strings after you're done playing.

They seems dirty and need to be changed. If the G, B and high E strings feel nasty while bending, you should change them.

People don't like Dave Mustaine because he created something that owned Metallica in just about every single aspect of thrash metal.

strings oxidize b/c of your sweat..you can either clean them or change them..1 hr of play a day every day and u have to change ur strings in like 3weeks

You know it's funny I can get away with 4-6 hours a day and my strings don't start to rust for at least 3 months.

But yeah make sure you wipe the guitar down after you're finished, and try changing to a different brand of strings.
