I see that this is a forum for selling guitars and not playing them, so if this is the wrong one, please forgive me. I do not seem to find one for playing guitar, but this is my question to the professional guitarists:
I have played keyboards for 40 years and finally made the transition to the guitar. I am loving playing both rhythm and lead and my fingers are developing callouses as expected, but my left hand is sore from playing the chords. I want to keep practicing every day and do not want to stop just because my fingers are sore. That sounds like an easy excuse to make and I don't want to make it.
How do you deal with it? Do I endure the soreness and keep going every day with the assumption that this soreness will subside? Is there some cream, lotion, or something else to put on my fingertips between practice sessions?
Thanks in advance...
