Hello everyone. I've owned guitars since I was a teenager but never did more than play around. I did start to take lessons while in school but after I broke my third string (nylon) my mom made me quit. Anyway I'm now 46 and have the time to really put into practice and learn now.
I'm on my second week of practicing and dealing with sore fingers. I'm working on 3 chords at a time right now and a basic strum. With my fingers being numb and sore I'm finding I prefer to practice often through the day for shorter periods, sometimes 30 minutes, sometimes 15, at least 3 times a day, some days more until my fingers get so sore I cant press down well.
Sometimes I can get nice sound, sometimes the buzz I find myself always correcting myself to get the nice sound but what I'm wondering is am I stressing too much about sound at this point? Should I keep correcting myself or just let it buzz and hope that it will get better as my fingers get tougher?
