I just went from 0.11 to 0.09-0.10 my fingers are really happy biggrin.gif

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

Hmmm, quite worn, but there is no deep spurs, I will regard this as 7.2

I really like the spurs on the middle and ring finger, but a spur on the index and some blood marks will even raise the marks. But I will give You 7.8 for this one!!!

Hey guys,
take good care of your fingertips!
Since I went back to a regular, even daily practice routine I started from 15 minutes each day to a maximum of 2 hours a day. My girlfriend told me to wash my hands afterwards with a soap that moisturizes the skin, then I put on some rich lotion. Guess what? The fingertips got harder over time, but nevertheless the skin stayed kinda smooth...well, it's not so rock'n'roll, I guess unsure.gif
But another story:
Before my last gig with my band my girlfriend ask me to do wash the dishes, and I said (remembering a Joe Satriani interview): "That's not so good right now, you know, I have a gig this evening and the water softens my fingertips." And she was like: " That's the most creative excuse I've ever heard"
But it worked!

Taking care of fingertips is important, and this is why the winner will probably get a premium skin lotion or something biggrin.gif

tongue.gif Hehe...I think I'm gonna take a photo of my fingers after band practice tonight, before and after washing them and applying lotion. I gotta admit, I've got a feeling that I'm a candidate for a new GMC funny with my lotion advice biggrin.gif

I am currently reading Creative Guitar 1 by Gunthrie Govan and he says exactly the same. Don't play guitar right after having had a shower/bath or after having washed the dishes. smile.gif

Btw, I never had any problem with my fingers. Perhaps I am not practicing enough ? I prefer to practice often for 1 or 2 hours than practicing during 10 hours once a week...

Yeah, thats true! But also it depends on what kind of strings You use, (I had .012 on my Strat, but have "downgraded" to .011 because of the finger problems...) the type of playing - bends seriously hurt Your fingers more than playing C-major scales.... laugh.gif and of course the action of the instruments itself!

smile.gif So there's the answer....... playing with heavy strings really hurts Your fingers, but on the other hand the Tone benefits from it, so I just keep on hurting myself! biggrin.gif

As promised, my fingertips directly after band practice. I didn't put some lotion on them yet, I want to do one or two lessons right now...hehe.
But I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna win anyway. And I already have a strat. cool.gif Oops, that was not very respectful to say mellow.gif wink.gif
