Hello there peoples!
So I'm stuck with an issue here... I love practicing and playing the guitar and I can usually go on for hours everyday jamming... my problem is, that I tend to sweat alot on my palms and I end up picking up my guitar and putting in down only afew minutes later in frustration because of it... it worsens my grip with the strings, the guitar, and overall its just not fun to play with all that going on... I would love any advise that could maybe help out
Thanks and rock on 🤘🏼🤘🏼

my husband has this problem. He uses this antiperspirant hand lotion called Carpe and it works amazingly for https://www.target.com/p/carpe-antiperspirant-hand-lotion-1-35-fl-oz/-/A-76160363

The finish on your neck could be an issue. I've found that a bare wood or oiled neck works best for schweaty stuff. If you've only got one guitar and it has a finished neck, you can consider (I say CONSIDER because you can't undo it) taking a scotch-brite pad or 0000 Steel wool to the back of the neck to take the shine off the finish and make it better.

Again, THIS CAN'T BE UNDONE, so if you're gonna try it, be sure you want to. Think about it like a tattoo.
