D'jya Ever Notice... ??

...The darker areas on your guitar's fretboard, from your fingers' oils, that show where you play the most?

 

I can see that I play over a LOT of the fretboard quite evenly on my main, standard-tuned axe; while the one that I tune to Open-D exhibits evidence of a pronounced loitering in the higher strings from the 5th-fret to the 22nd. There's actually very little darkening under much of the 6th- and 5th-strings on the Open-D axe, as I tend to just play them open as pedals and drones beneath chords, double-stops, and string-skipping intervals like "sixths".

 

How 'bout you?

Yep, I've noticed that. I also notice that some positions have more fret wear than others. I wonder if one could indentify the style played on a certain guitar by looking at fret wear and finger oil-stained fretboards...??

Yup. I notice that on all my guitars.

I actually have tried to put this to good use. When I noticed the areas that were the most played, I made an effort to practice in the zones that were "cleaner". I figured that it must mean that I'm ignoring those regions of the fretboard for some reason, and working on those spots should improve my playing (or at least vary it a bit).

May all your thoughts be random!
