Once you have the calluses, your fingers will stop going numb or hurting. That's sort of the point of them. But, when I just started playing, I managed to actually cut my thumb on the string, and found that bandaids protect your fingers well, as well as medical tape. I ended up putting it on all of my fingers before realizing that I might as well just have the calluses.
ok first of all you have to choose if you want to use your fingers or a pic if you want to use a pic problem salved! :) if you want to use your fingers then try puting tape ofer your finges you have to practice doing it first thts what i do it took me a week to learn how to play without my fingers slipping off the strings hope it helps -+-
Getting calluses is important in playing guitar. i've been playing for 3 years now. when i first started playing it did hurt. then my finger tips started peeling. But now i hardly have any and theres no more pain when i play. so please dont try to avoid getting calluses. the pain is only temporary
I've been playing guitar for years, its just recently that I've been practicing/playing for hours on end, and my ring and middle fingers are still numb.
use a guitar pick and put lotion on your hands befoer and after playing
