My strings smell like onions.

I had old strings on a guitar I had stopped playing for a considerable amount of time and when I picked it back up they smelled like hot dogs

One might ask how you became aware of this... I don't normally put my nose that close to the guitar ;-)


Ha! You guys are a riot!
Yeah... I think it has something to do with playing at a friend's house last night, after eating his wife's lumpia. I thought a little grease would make my fingers faster. And it did! Just wasn't expecting the lingering reminder of the evening :/
Nothing a little fast fret couldn't solve. Anyone else notice think that stuff now smells like shaving cream??

And yes, that would be incredibly irritating! I would change my strings over that before dull tone.
