Look here what GMC did to my fingers! I can't hardly type on the keyboard anymore. (but my health insurance doesn't consider this to be enough for a vacation from work... sad.gif )
Post Your fingers here until new years eve, the baddest fingers will get a present from me!!! (instructors are welcome as well biggrin.gif ) Posts are rated on a 1-10 scale, but the final judgement will be at new years day!

wow.. I thought.. I was the only one.. Its all gone now but it was worst that that.. I could hardly touch the strings but it became so tough that bends are not a problem now (almost) and vibrato is super cool (than before). Pain is not even there. smile.gif I was thinking of posting it then but somehow didn't as it was too ugly. biggrin.gif Glad you started it. smile.gif

Muris raped my finger tips. Yes, this happened after the MTP. smile.gif

You will feel playing is much better after few days. Congratulations!

Nah, this is what you need:

Applications:
Apply directly to fretting fingers and leave to dry. Alternatively, apply to fretting fingers and then immediately attach to another area of skin. Wait for adhesion and then remove fingers from flesh with force: INSTA-CALLUS!

Hmmm, it doesn't seems preferable before starting one of Muris lessons. You might ending up beeing glued in an off-pentatonic mode... laugh.gif

//Staffay

EDIT: No I'm not using barb-wire, but at the moment i'm *trying* with 0.12 instead of 0.11 on my strat....

back when I started practicing several hours a day, this is about a year ago, my fingers looked TERRIBLE. I had some calluses, but they werent well rounded, and just sort of looked like plates of skin.... it was bad

Hmm, they didn't look so hurted, more like they should when You are practicing hard. smile.gif
But I will give You a 6 on these, even though there aren't any real "trails" from the strings.
That the fingerprints are almost gone, does level up though. biggrin.gif
