My fingers are taking a beating. I haven't played guitar (for more than 10 or 15 minutes every month, or so) for probably 4, or five years. I've never used a pick, and my left hand wrist action is incorrect, so I'm trying to rid my brain of a seven year learned habit... and within a weeks time. I feel clumsy, like a baby first learning to walk. I really hope these guitar lessons pay off.
