Get over it, you'll get hard skin on your fingers soon.


I think he means fingers as in joints, not skin... And saying "Get over it." sounds really Dickey...

If you're talking about the pain we think you are....Sore FingerTips ? then yes, just get over it. It will get better with time.

Play through the pain
no pain no gain
etc etc..

Now If you're talking about sore muscles/joints, that may be a problem. Take a break, see a doctor.

Rest. It really is the only way.


This I think.


If you're only doing that recently then there's a good chance your fingers are tired out, giving them rest for a few days should solve this.

It'll also allow for callouses to grow (abit, I think)

If you are talking about the actual hand it could be CTS, if you just mean the tips of your finger it is just your growing clauses (good thing). Also always take a 10 minute break when you play for a hour and always stretch out your hand before you play.

Clever, Since you've shown us all how competent you need to be to come up with a remark so, though I hate to say it, Epic, your work here is now done. Please leave so we can get back to TS's problem at hand.

you could also just take some ibuprophen or aleve. Although if the pain continues, see a doctor. I found out recently i've had rheumatoid arthritis for a while and i was just playing through the pain, making it worse

You've gotta take it easy to let your fingers recoupe a bit.. if you on a strict practise regiment, howevever, and can't break from practise then pick up a nylon string guitar or a bass for a day or 2 (which have larger / softer strings and distribute pressure less painfully).
