I play a Yamaha acoustic guitar and periodically I need to change strings as they tend to lose sound quality over time. I don’t mind this so much when I’m at home playing and practicing but when I go out to a guitar jam I like to have new strings on the ole guitar. You know, just in case the guitar police show up as they have in the past.
I can play my acoustic guitar strings until they need replacing however my guitar buddy Gary only plays them until they break. Okay, he doesn’t break them all that much but he does break more than any other person I play guitar with.
We play guitar any chance we get, especially after a long hard day at work and guitar strings tend to pick up any sweat or oils on your fingers which eventually starts to deaden the sound of our strings.
I’ve tried a lot of different strings on my guitars and just don’t seem satisfied with anything other than the medium D’Addario steel strings. They give me the sound I like as they do for most of my guitar friends, but not all of them.
In the ten years I have been playing guitar I have only ever had two guitars, both which were Yamaha acoustic guitars so I don’t have a lot of experience with any other guitars but I have learned that some of my friends prefer other manufacturers of guitar strings.
Oh I should add that if you are like my brother you might have to worry about rusty strings as he hardly ever picks up his guitar to play any more. Last time I visited Ontario I couldn’t even turn the keys to try and tune it.
Give That Old Guitar A New Set of Strings
If you put on a new set of acoustic guitar strings on a regular basis, you will be able to tune your guitar perfectly like guitar buddy Jason who can actually tune his guitars by ear, something I’m still working on.
