Hi, Ninja!

Well, there is no secret remedy, but I will show some tricks:

* Use polished basse strings such as:

* Use baby powder on your finger tips
* Wet your finger tips a little
* Get rid of callus by filing with nail file

I have never tried them, but they may work.

I actually like the squeak - shows you are playing an acoustic and sounds cool IMO!
