Okay, so I'm a new guitarist. (Well, 7 or 8 months old, but everyone I seem to meet had been playing for 20 years or so, even some of the teenagers)

I've been having this problem, during the winter where I live, it's very very dry, and after alot of practicing, my fingertips seem to dry up and peel off. Leaving my fingers fairly tender. I thought this might fix itself after a while, but it hasn't. I play anywhere from 1 to 8 hours a day. Is this supposed to happen? Or should I do something to fix it?

Thanks UG!

Q: OK, so do you care about the labels — nastiest, edgiest team in the NFL?

Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

Dude you need to be 13 to join these forums.

But I have to admit, your intelligence for that age is amazing!
Ha ha, thanks, but seriously, I'm only like 5.

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

Teenagers can only go to 19. For that to be true the person must have began playing guitar before he existed

In all seriousness, no that's fine. That's your calluses falling off. Hurts like a bitch but it takes like 2 days for me to build up a new one.
Damn, I was kind of thinking that's what it was. Oh well, thanks.

I'm an 8 month old guitarist, who happens to be a sarcastic ass. But the xylophone is hella fun.

it may have to do with the 8 hours thing. if you whacked off for 8 hours, it would fall off too.

Didn't he just say he's 5?

My fingers do the same thing. Nothing to worry about, just keep playing.
