My Fingers Hurt From Playing Guitar!



I’m a guitar beginner and started learning some basics chords and songs. The main problem I’m facing now is the ends of my fingers hurt every time when I’m trying to practice. It’s pretty painful. What can I do?



Newbie will experience some discomfort at first because your fingertips have not toughened. Some newbie also have a tendency to press too hard on the strings. That’s why it hurt your fingers. With time and a light touch (enough pressure to contact the fret top is all that is needed) the pain will eventually go away after you build up calluses. No pain no gain, right?

You may give your fingers a break if you feeling the pain. Let them rest for a while before continue your practice.
