    my finger hurts, help?

    i thought about asking in the help section but this is kinda spammy, if any staff members think otherwise then please move it

    i've been playing guitar all day and now my fingertips hurt and they're all dry and blistered, this still happens to me after five years of playing when i spend long periods of time practicing, i dont push the strings overly hard and my fingertips are by now very hardened, still they hurt and get blistered. does anyone know any secret chinese remedy of some sort to cure me and lend me the gift of iron fingers? or, you know, any other tips...?

    Stop playing guitar. You suck at it anyway.

    Shut up.
    I play the cello myself (yes, you use your fingers a lot there >_>), i usually put eight-hour cream on my fingers, and it helps a little.

    Don't tell me to shut up you little prick. You play the cello, and put (dick)cream on your hands, so pipe down.

    Also, play for longer more often, it is the only way you will get properly used to it.

    Fraz, shut the fuck up. Tagging vague advice to the end of your second post doesn't save you from being a giant faggot either btw

    Jonny, try buying thicker strings? Sound quality won't be the same but there'll be less pressure on your fingers.

    Um, is this happening when you're doing bends? I had that a lot too, but I was an idiot and used one finger to do them >_> But yeah, if you're using one finger to do bends, use two. If it's not bends though, tune your guitar down half a step. It's what Tony Iommi did q:
