Kids complaining about callouses gave me a chuckle. If I could trade joint damage for a lack of hard fingertips...


Oh, I know. Between playing for so many years and spending time typing on a keyboard, I can often feel a bit of pain after playing for a few hours. I remember having strings so high off the fretboard that when I'd bend the string, the one next to it would go under my fingernail. But, I wanted to play so badly, I kept with it. My teacher eventually told my parents that I wouldn't progress as far nor as fast unless I got a better guitar. They got one for me that Christmas and it made a world of difference. By then, I had tough callouses and that made the guitar even easier to play.

Now if I only I could bring back my hearing as well after years standing in front of a Randall stack.
