Is my guitar really that bad?

When I play a note (particularly an open string) and then just let it ring, the note varies slightly and eventually starts to get flatter.

On a decent guitar should the note remain perfect until it dies?

When was the last time you changed strings?

Good point, it was quite a while ago.

But this set of strings must be the best I've ever had. I don't wnat to lose them.

:(

Plus the only other set of strings I have are Hybrids whereas the current ones are Slinkies. I don't want to change the set up when it's playing so well lately.

Word... when we say "Replace" strings we mean quit trying to clean the rust off of them and just buy a new pair allready. hehe

But maybe the next set will be even better, you'll never know until you try.

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

i expect any set will sound better if you havent changed them in a while so you really have nothing to lose!!

This applies to underwear too. It doesn't matter if it's your favorite pair, you'll benefit from changing them.

Maybe that's why I an't get a date!!

Have put this theory to the test and found it flawed: Cannot play sans strings. OTOH, feel quite liberated ...

STOP!!!

Too much information.

I've had a lot of sobering thoughts in my time.
