I play at least an hour or 2 a day, every day. But my strings go dead within a week or 2. I've tried Slinkys, Power Slinkys, Lo Riders, Nickel Lo Riders, and Hi Beams. My hands sweat a lot, I think that's what's doing it. When I say go dead, I mean I like the sound of new strings, that 'zing' that they have, and they lose it within a week or 2. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to prolong the 'new string' sound? I know about soaking the strings to get them sounding new again, but I'm talking about having the new string sound longer. Thanks.
