I think this belongs here, since calusses =/= guitar techniques or whatever... Anyways. One of my calusses just died in the humidity and my shower. My sister says if I burn my fingers, it will harden the skin after a while and it'll be like a caluss... Um... Yeah. What the hell? You guys think there's any validity to that?

Id rather not.

If you burn it too much it'll probably ache as much as it used to when you started out
#6
you should post a pic of sister, and we could decide if its true or not.

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think
#11
Your sister must have tried to burn her brains to see if she'd turn smart, before she gave you advice like that.

Seriously, I'd strongly advice against trying to burn your fingers man. You'll only damage your skin instead of hardening it, making it even more impossible to play guitar...
#12
dont do it. the pain sounds ridiculous compared to building up a callus and that along just isn't worth it. just take it a little slow for a week and give it time to build again...

By the way, she's married.

Whatever. Any non-ridiculous suggestions to get my calusses back? I play a lot, half-addicted and play daily, don't really want to stop.
Should I coat them in adamantium?

You play a lot. That's enough, really. The best suggestion I can give you is patience.

I think I heard that Eric Clapton used methylated spirits to harden his calluses so you could try that.

yea, burning them is just stupid. the best way is to just play til they come back, but I've heard a few tricks before, like getting a bowl with a little salt or sugar in the bottom and tapping and rubbing your fingers in it while watching TV or whatever. I've also heard of other stuff like soaking your fingertips in rubbing alcohol or bleach for a little while every day to dry em out and help build calluses, as well as a bunch of other ways that sounded like bullshit.

I've heard rubbing them on sandpaper helps when you're not playing guitar. I don't know, I've never tried it. I can't imagine that's any better than just playing though.
