ive been playing guitar for about a year, and i play guitar quite often. at least 3 hours or so a day. Id play more, but the tips of my fingers start to hurt after an hour or so, and it makes it really hard to play guitar, and ill have to stop playing for a day or so so that they can go back to normal. Is there any way i can prevent this or make my fingers tougher?
just keep playin man, or you could switch to smaller gauge strings... but that wont help much over time.

keep playing till your skin starts peeling, than your skin will naturally grow back harder, and you won't feel as much next time, and before you know if you will have calluses on your fingers and be shreddin like EVH. POW!
It's all about feel
