I have been playing electric guitar for about 10 months now. I have never had much fingertip pain after the first month or so.
After playing the acoustic for about 2 hours straight my fingertips are really hurting.
I guess I'm not such a tough guy.
I guess it could have a lot to do with the different string size or perhaps the action is different that what I'm used to.
I'll toughen up.
perhaps drop the string size one size down?
