If i play a note on any of my strings the note vibrates, the sound that you get when two strings are out of tune. Is this a sign telling me i need new strings?

Is this when you play one string through an amp?

Maybe you're playing with excessively high gain.

In case you're interested, you need new strings if:
-They become black, rough and rusty
-They lose their bright sound
-They break

Huh? Unless you have perfect pitch I doubt you could tell that a single string was slightly out of tune, unless it's tuned to drop D or something. The vibrating noise you are talking about is made when you play the same note on 2 different strings and they are not in tune with each other. So I'm not sure what you are talking about there and would have to say no, that is not a sign that your strings are old.

I change my gain and does the same thing. Yea it's like a ringing if you know what I mean, what you listen for when manually tuning your guitar

If you follow his example, you dont need to worry about them getting old. Once a month is a good idea if you play everyday. Some people would disagree with that though...

I change a string when it breaks. I'm trying to develop a habit of changing all of them when one breaks. A friend told me I should.

Before that, I had my electric guitar for 3 years and 4 of the strings were the ones it came with when I bought it.
