Ok, I have calouses (which I'm sure you all know and probably have too). Anyways, my calouses look very bad after a long time of playing, they tear apart and they look disgusting. Is there a way to keep them but w/o the disgusting look to them even after extended play? Also, sometimes, eventually my fingers start to hurt, is there anything I could do to stop this?
I've gotten a lot of LOLs in my time but I choose not to sig them to not look like a pretentious douchebag

No. Be a man and suck it up.


Edit: If my strings are really dirty, they make my fingertips broken, calloused, and greenish-brown. It's pretty awesome.

Calm down nancy boy. They aren't "disgusting" as you so eloquently put it.

Callouses are like scars. They are symbols of manliness and perseverance. Man up.

Yeah I really think you definitely should go to the Body Shop. You can talk smack with your "gurlz", buy lotions and creams, and check out the "hot guyz" that are coming in or walking past the store.

It's the early stages of leprocy. Sorry you had to find out this way.


Callouses are just layers of deadened skin. Dead skin peels. Get over it.

Well, there's a reason why I don't want to have rough callouses which I can't say. All I was asking was for some simple way of keeping my callouses from tearing apart and looking like I was fingering a female hulk.

look, just use your right hand. and as for the callouses, they're necessary for playing the guitar and sounding ok. the worse your fingers look, the better you sound. if you don't want them, just quit the guitar

*Sigh* I wasn't bitching about 'em, I've been getting 'em since I got my guitar and I haven't really cared.

I found 'em to be a medal of pride for guitar playing, but ever since I've been playing really fast and tapping and pulling off and hammering on they've been peeling (they haven't before, atleast not like this)


All I wanted to know was a way to make them peel none or atleast less -_-

On topic, I swear I don't have callouses on my fingers. I always heard that guitarists are supposed to have callouses but I've been playing three and a half years and my fingers are fine. It doesn't hurt to play either. I don't get it.

@D.B Cooper: Nice. I like that 'found Jesus' part.

@Everyone else: F*ck it, I heard there were remedies you could do to avoid peeling but I couldn't find any that doesn't include more effort than I'm willing to use.

Also, on topic, try coating your fingers with superglue. Wikipedia recommends it.

It's not really all that interesting. The skin gets kinda thick and feels like you dipped the tips of your fingers in melted candle wax and let it dry, almost like there's a shell on em. They just look kinda dirty with little bits of skin coming off here and there.
