Topic: I feel like a newbie - my calluses are gone!
For about 8 years I've been playing guitar pretty steadily - almost on a daily basis - at least a few times a week. This is the first time I've ever neglected my guitars. Since the June camping shindig with Zurf, I probably haven't picked up a guitar for more than a couple of hours total. No real reason, just busy I guess.
Later today I am hosting a mini-chordiestock and have been playing a little last night and this morning. Yikes! my fingers hurt - calluses are GONE! Lesson learned - don't let this happen again!
