I have been playing guitar for 5 years now and i have only broken 2 strings, and it was when i was tuning. I play fingerstyle and play very softly, i don't even use a pick when i play electric! I experiment with different tunings, it was the G and E string and I was trying to tune them too high!

Same my last brokenstring was when my sister bought me a winder for tuning and I was so excited I tuned that string into 2 pieces.

I wish I knew what strings my guitar first came with. They lasted so long, I had the guitar for maybe four years before I changed them. I'm not an avid player and I don't play in front of crowds or anything so replacing them wasn't such a big deal for me, even though the low sound quality was horrible. Right now I have... Ernie Ball strings. They have a nice sound, and they feel pretty close to the ones I had before. The guy who helped me was so great, I don't know any of the technical words for everything I need for my guitar, and he helped me find everything I tried describing, it was great.
Anyway, hopefully these strings will last me a long time. I play even less often than I did before because of work and such.

my fingers used to be pretty strong - the trick is to get the other strings out of the way - that means you have to bend the other strings as well

You must play with the largest neck radius ever. Like 12 at very least. On my intage neck fender 7.25 that **** would fret out.

I break the G string on my guitars most frequently. It's pushed me into getting thicker strings, which helps tonality as well as prolonging string life.

loooooooollllllll weak fret radii.

My ibby is a 16" radius.

Personally though, 12" is about the middleground ideal for me.
