    I sweat a lot.. So my sweat makes my strings rusted and makes its uneasy for slide.. Is der a way to solve it?

    Clean the strings with a soft dry cloth after you are done playing.....Do NOT leave the guitar out of its case/gig bag after you clean it, wen moisture and air combine causes oxidation which could rust the other parts too ........Can't think of any other idea to get rid of the rust issue

    There is nothing u can do about u sweating a lot. But make sure u wash ur hands before u pick up the guitar. Coz sweat + dust = adds to rust.. But what u can do to prolong the rusting of ur strings is peoperly mentioned by @Arya ^

    Its important that u clean the strings even if u play ur guitar for 5 mins...If you do this...say for example ur strings rust within a month. Follow this practice and nothing will happen to ur strings for atleast 6 months...
