OK; this has been an ongoing issue of mine for over 25 years, and I'm only writing about it now, because in the last few months it has gotten WAY worse. Wonder if y'all have had this issue & what you have done to fix it, if it CAN be fixed. When I get onstage to play, from the very first song, it feels like my fingers have glue on them & stick to the strings..IOW I get no slippage. Up until a few months ago, I was able to override this with fresh new strings every couple gigs,and touching a piece of tissue in a medicine bottle soaked with olive oil but now even new strings don't help & it's destroying my speed & hybrid picking, and has become very frustrating. Here's what I have tried: Finger Ease & Fast Fret. Works for about 1/2 a song, then it's worse. Washing my hands right before I go onstage. No luck Cleaning my strings each break, with just about every chemical known to man...DW-40,alcohol,Blitz cloth. No luck Baby powder...no luck; just a mess. New strings...used to work; not anymore Rubbing my fingers across my forehead...works for 1/2 song, then just as bad. Eating potato chips before & during the set...again 1/2 a song Eating pepperoni before I go onstage...this works about the best; good for 1 song, maybe 2. Doesn't matter which guitar I use...Fender,Gibson,Mosrite...all the same. And here's the rub...this DOES NOT happen when I play at home, only onstage. Outdoor gigs are worse, especially if they're on the beach. I used .010-.038 strings; very low action, & zero relief on my neck. All my guitars have standard frets, except my '72 Strat has medium jumbos. Hope someone here has a solution; this has become very frustrating & actually caused me to think of just playing steel & giving up guitar.
