I took the last two days off guitar playing. My fingers are thanking me. I used to have calluses when I played violin in high school. Now my fingers are a soft as a peach and can’t take any pressure. A numbness came over the tips for a couple of days and just a few minutes of playing caused them to whine and moan. I want the calluses. I don’t care that my fingers hurt. I didn’t take a few days off because they hurt, I just didn’t have time to play.

C’mon fingers! Toughen up! You can DO THIS!

Index finger, you have complained the most. I’m tired of it. Get over yourself!


Is anyone else scared that I’m giving my fingers a pep talk on my blog?
