So my main guitar is a '79 Precision, which I got a little while back in a trade. It came with these flats that are pretty high tension (which I love), so I left them on there - I'm one of those that never change his strings unless necessary. Anyway, the drawback that I've come to really hate is that these darn things are pretty sticky-feeling and they really slow me down. When I'm playing blues or something similar with walking basslines, it's not that big of a deal but when I've really got my funk on, it's a bit of a pain. How do you all deal with sticky strings? Do you have any tips or tricks, or do you tend to just say "screw it" and buy a different brand? Personally, I dislike waiting for new strings to become dead and thumpy - not to mention the problem of finding strings with the right tension for me, so I always prefer NOT buying new ones. Ideas?
