A: until they stop hurting
B: until you suck it up ;]

I think I'm out of it. I read the title as ""Who else loves pornography?"

until the pain goes away then start playing again the more you plat the quicker your fingers will get hard and callused so it wont hurt any more
#6
Ooooh noes! A whole day!

Give it a day, really. You've got to build up the callouses. 12 hours or so you'll probably be fine.

Or you could play though the pain, your call.

I don't think that's the correct use of the phrase "going mad."

quit being a bitch, I have to scrub the blood of my guitar everyday. Course the blood isn't just from my fingers... I am sure the countless virgins I raped and pillaged added to it a bit... Still, quit being a bitch.

You're ok until they start to bleed, then take a break because you can damage the flesh and make it very painful to play at all. Basically if theyre not bleeding its safe to play.

glad you liked that, I had to vent. But yeah, when my fingers started to kill I gave it like a days break then started up again, they stop hurting really quickly.
#15
Why don't you stop practicing guitar for a while and learn how to spell instead?

I was 1/2 asleep 1/2 awake when I type that out. I was in AP english for the past three years, I know how to spell.

I play through the pain and eventually my tips go numb and a nice callous forms.. that is after I haven't played for a couple days and they get all squishy and bitch-like.
#19
Keep playing, you moron.

No pain, no gain.

That usually only happens when you fisrt start playing. After a couple of weeks your fingers won't get sore anymore, because they will be use to it. Don't wait for it to go away, because then you will never get use to the way it feels.

Guys, his first language probably isn't even English, calm down.

Just wait a day, otherwise play through the pain, they'll harden quicker.
Stop when they bleed, and don't bite off any blisters, bad mistake!

if i go for like 8 hours or so a day... my fingers start to hurt so i just put ice on them and then you can play for like 5 minutes before you have to re-ice them. usually works good
