Hey mate, nice work on getting a guitar from school for your daughter. I guess it's a matter of opinion really, personally if she is 8 i wouldn't spend too much on a guitar until she is a bit older and really wantes to play fo0r herself, and u dont want a crappy instrument that feels unnatural and wont allow you to progress.... but it is a matter of opinion.

In terms of your fingers, i was in the same boat. I played a lil bit when i was 18 then gave it up after my finger tips got sliced up in an accident at work. now almost ten years later i have picked it up again and at first i felts alot of pain but only in finger tips. The pain you are feeling (I think) would be in the joints of your fingers...this is normal and it's due to your finger being required to perform movements that are new and unnatural. Your fingers will build up strength over time and get used to the demands placed on them by playing guitar. And some instructors here have given me some good advice in this area.....This isn't a gym so if u feel pain stop....I also would play for 2-3 hrs then the next morning they would be stiff and a lil bit sore....The answer was to have a day off playing guitar. Or try something different ie: playing lead/bending alot hurts, study rhythm...

Anyway here is a forum post i made when i picked up the guitar again.... https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=39616
