I’d had the same strings on my guitar for about 6-7 months before finally getting around to changing them. That’s a very long time for one set of strings if you weren’t aware.
It of course depends on how much or how often you play. Eventually the strings just go flat or I tend to call them dead. They don’t have a clear ring anymore and just sound awful.
Well I finally bought some new strings and just played for a little while tonight for the first time (actually playing much at once) in a long time. New strings are as pleasing as the scent of fresh cut grass.
I have a feeling this weekend will go by very quickly now..
