You most likely played longer than you're accustomed to.

theyre 12's of course your fingers hurt


Yea i know but I had 12's before...?

And no I haven't played more than I'm accustomed (sp? Sry) to. I normally play on average 2-3 hours per day. And I played like 1 hour today and my fingers hurt.

Also they are Ernie Balls....

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

doesnt usually happen to me when i put new strings on. When you say sore though do you mean like aches and pains or like blisters or stuff on your fingers???

it maybe that tension is slightly higher cos the strings havent been worked in therefore you'll have to work slightly harder to hold chords/notes etc .

Its more likely you've just done something you're not really used to like new chords where you stretch more or you played more than usual.

i find that even just not playing guitar at all for a couple of days then going and playing for hours i will develop blisters or get cramp a lot more easily than if i had played regularly.

In short probably nothing to worry about!!

That's a heavy gauge.. How long have you been playin? Chances are, if you're somewhat new (a year or so), you're gonna have to build the callouses on your fingers before you'll play for 3 hours without any discomfort. Otherwise, you could just be tired, sick, or just plain sore. Worry about it when it happens frequently.

No dude. I've been playing for 1 1/2 years.

About 8 months of that was with .12 gauge. I have never had sore fingers from using .12 gauges except maybe when I first got them. And I already have callouses..It's probably just that since the strings are new and not really stretched that they need to loosen up a bit and they'll be alright.

possibly the inspiration of new stings made you play longer than usual? that would make your fingers hurt a little no matter what guage you are used to...
