Okay so what are the easiest electric strings to slide on.

I've just spent the last 2 hours trying to play a song on these ****ing rusted ass stock strings on my les paul (I think they were d'dario or GHS and they were never that smooth) and I swear I want to freakin stab a puppy in the face I'm so frustrated.

I have d'dario on my acoustic as well and they're rusty feeling already (not even been a month).

I remember elixers on my acoustic were always smooth, but I hear elixers on electric suck.

I'm thinking EB regular slinkys but I've never tried them.

So in your opinion what are the best strings for smooth sliding?
this is a post. there are many like it but this one is mine

sliny's are good, but they might cause problems if your guitar has a trem

elixers on electric are great, and they last forever...atleast for me, I've had the same ones on for about 2 months and I gig regularly and I play in a high energy band with lots of sweat, they're great, definitely worth the extra money too.

Really? You must not play much, Elixers are shot after 3 weeks for me. Ernie Balls last about 3 days until they sound dead. I'd definitely recommend Elixers, they are pretty smooth

Well, can't you condition strings? Every time after I finish playing, I wipe my strings down with a cloth, and sometimes use string conditioner (not always). I find it extends string life a little bit, so why not?

I play alot. I just said I gig alot, band practice 2 times a week for 8 hours, and between all that i play on my own 4-6 hours a day. Some people just have less oils on their fingers, and I guess I'm one of them.

If your strings rust that fast, you need to wipe your strings off. I had a set of D'Addarios on for 2 months before and they sounded like new.
