3.9 Sore Fingers

Unfortunately sore fingers are going to affect us all (aching and pain) – even for the most experienced players who may decide to take a sabbatical for a month or 2.

The aching will eventually go away as you develop finger and thumb strength and you will eventually develop hard skin/calluses that will negate any once-sore digits.

Andy offers up some advice on how you can continue to “play” though the pain barrier:

You have to go through pan barrier and need to build up calluses on all 4 fingers

  Tips – Lighter gauge strings/Lower action on neck…….Not recommended as really a cheats way out

  Continue to play by using different fingers or different part of finger

  Perform exercises exerting no pressure such as muting or open string exercises.

We’re sure you’ll get through it!

Our goal is to provide you with the training, inspiration, motivation and confidence to become the guitarist you dream of becoming.
