My callouses are KILLING ME! They dont seem to stay at all and i play a good 4-5 hours a day. Is there some sort of way to making my callouses grow faster?

Keep practicing. You might want to try FastFret.
I find it helps keep my fretboard clean and it seems to help with sore fingers.

Apparently putting vinegar on your fingertips hardens them up, but I wouldnt try it.
It seems like it would only be temporary, and you would need to do it to be able to play - like, become reliant on it.

Just play..... lots

Hehe.. I thought my fingers got tough enough to take any beating from the guitar.. even if I played for hours.. but I soon realized that it was because I wasn't playing the acoustic guitar much. About a week ago, I started playing on the acoustic, and now, I can't hardly press the strings. I have to rest tomorrow. My thumb is even sore.. been playing a lot of songs involving my left thumb.
