...guitar strings. It's a smell I don't really mind, but it annoys me that every time I play my fingers smell like that. Is there any way, other than just washing my hands (which doesn't really work much) that I can prevent or get rid of this smell after playing?

EDIT: My guitar is electric.

What are your strings made of? Cabbage?

You mean acoustics? Put new strings on. My electric doesn't have bad smelling strings.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

If it's a bad smell, it's probably your fretboard, not the strings. Plus what strings do you use? D'addarios smell divine.

I know what you mean. Whenever I play my 12string, my hands smell weird.

I don't like it. The whole thing is getting a proper clean when I get home.

My guitar has 3 strings that are from the factory, 2 exilir strings, and one dean markley

I think it's the factory strings causing the stench

Whatever you clean your guitar with you might get on the strings too :P


I don't clean my guitar, maybe that's it then?

rub strawberrys up and down the neck

I rub chocolate up and down mine, all 4 thick strings, chocolate coated.

When I play, girls flock to me like birds...

Jk. :P

Anyone tried?
I don't know what I'm doing, but I still do it anyway...


Just for the lulz.

The smell of new guitar amps is pretty nice.

Oh, I LOVE that smell.

I also adore the smell of an amp that hasn't been played in a while, and the dust collects on the tubes. When it burns off, it smells really good to me
