Owwww. I just started about 2 months ago. Then I had to go on vacation for about 2 weeks and when I got back my fingers got sore really easily so I feel like I'm back at the beginning...:( But I'm learning my first song so I'm good. :)

The guitar? Or the violin? I'm guessing it's a string instrument.

This is sort of random, but once this guy came to our school to play his sitar.  He told he practiced like 14hrs a day and when we felt his fingers they were actually rock hard.  It was crazy. :P

Sitars are so cool!

But yeah... I hate how your fingers feel when you're struggling through the beginning...

And I bet that is not fun, especially if your skin had callused before.

Keep on practicing, Simarwen, the guitar is a beautiful, versatile instrument.  Sitars are great, too.  My ex-tabla teacher used to practice at least eight hours a day, it just goes with the territory.

Right now I practice on the a*se trombone...I love it but for some reason my gf objects!  buck  My aim is to get "Flight of the Bumblebee" down to perfection...

I've always wanted to play guitar and play folk music... (Like Mary Hopkin, Sil. ;))

May Heaven forgive those who insist on perpetuating the insanity that is Flight of the Bumblebee. Moving forward, I do play the Irish whistle, a little. Practice roughly once every time I feel like it, for as long as it takes me to get bored.

Hey, of course the harmonica counts!   grin

Try doing a search on YouTube for "Sonny Boy Williamson", (I love 'Nine Below Zero'), or "Hootin the Blues" by Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee...
