I've played bass for a year and a half and guitar for 2 months, but the skin on my index finger keeps getting ripped up on my guitar strings. Every other finger has a nice hard callus on it, but it really hurts when i play with my index after 30 minutes or so. Is there a reason for this? has it happened to anyone else? any suggestions?

ive played for about 8 months and all of my fingers are like that, I usually stop for the day when they get all ripped.

Bass and guitar calluses are different. Bass ones are thick pads, while guitarist get ones that resist cutting better. No way around it other than stopping being such a pussy and playing through it I'm afraid. They will build up over time.

However, it won't encourage the development of calluses. Only repeatedly straining the skin will.

Too many people own guitars. Someone had better go play a... clarinet or something.

My callouses shed every three months or so (seriously, they just peel off, it's really gross) so maybe there just isn't anything you can do about it?
