Make sure your hands are clean before you play.

Wipe your strings down after you play.

Maybe switch to another brand.

And try out a set of DR strings if you get the chance. I had my last pair on for months, and they never gained any rust or lost any tone whatsoever

My guitar teacher was telling me that around 1 in every 100 people have a certain type of acid in their sweat, and causes them to corrode much quicker. I have the same issue; I just kinda have to accept it.

Ok cool, thanks a lot guys, do you have any suggestions as to what I should use to wipe them down with?


The Ernie Ball stuff I mentioned or a cotten cloth.

I use Elixers. They coat the strings in something, they last forever.
