J_2012 Posted October 2, 2003 Share Posted October 2, 2003 I've been playing guitar for a little over a month now(if you don't count the year that I played when I was younger) and have been making decent progress but lately i've been having some problems with my fingers and my hand. For the first week they were all blistered and bleeding like I expected. Then for the following weeks my fingers were firm and I got calises(sorry about the spelling)on the tips and I really began to make progress. But about a week ago my fingertips began to flake and pieces of hardened skin that were sticking up started getting caught on the strings and plucking the strings when I lifted my hands. I've also got indentations in my finger tips that make it difficult change chords quickly. I don't ever remember this happening when I played before. I've tried to file down the calis but that doesn't seem to work. If that wasn't enough a couple of days ago I pulled a nerve between my index and middle finger and now I've lost a lot of the strength in my fingers and can't use my thumb on the top string anymore. Can someone help me out. Im hoping this is something that all players go through, because i've havent been able to make any progress in the last week. I've actually gotten worse. thanks.
