I`d suggest playing stuff with chords that have lots of slides, that gave me calluses when I started playing, but once I stopped playing acoustic I lost them.

^also remember to take days off.

Actually that's what you should try to avoid if you really want to get calluses faster...
It's better if he plays a bit more calm without shredding his fingers, but doing it for a long period and everyday. You have to apply a lower level of wearing on your fingers but doing it constantly until you feel it may be overdoing it. Then take a rest and after a few hours or maybe the next day, continue.

I`m not saying often, but I remember playing every day when every my fingers would stop hurting, and the time I could actually play each day kept getting less and less. That`s when I`m saying a day off would be used.

That might have just been me though.

I just spend my spare time stabing my fingertips with nails.


Since when do you fingerpick?

I ran out of picks last night.
