Subject: RE: finger-squeaks revisited
I used to know a guitarist who used ordinary talcum powder and wiped the metal strings down after every session... seemed to work for him but he was the sort of guy who didn't have clammy hands. Knew another guitarist who had terrible problems... shaking hands with him was like holding a damp sponge. He had awful trouble with stringping and developed an affectation of rubbing his hands on his knee about 8 times a piece to try and dry them. It didn't work.
