  • Played it till my fingers bled...



    Bought myself this over the weekend. It's a Fender DS 14SCE Semi Acoustic, steel string guitar and my fingers are in agony!

    I had a guitar about 2 years ago but only played it for about 6 months. Getting this it's amazing what I remember. I can play E,A,D & G cords and a few others (but not sure what they are) I remember. Still I need to toughen up my fingers - steel strings hurt. :icon24:

    Anyone else here play?

    Ive been playing the bass guitar for maybe 4 or 5 years now. Was in a band, did some shows around baltimore and DC, put a CD out. Had fun while it lasted :)

        My brother back at home has his Custom B.C. Rich Bronze Warlock electric Guitar, but yours is nice too. I never was the best acostic player though (even though I love it's sounds).

          LOL

          I almost thought you were talking about Joint Ops but then I remembered two things: this isn't the JO forum and it's not out in the UK. :D

          I don't know anything about guitars but I do recognize the Fender name. That's some cool stuff.

          - It's who you game with.

                hey jex i know of a product that plays the chords for you... all you have to do is angle it right and move it in the right direction... you play like a pro... and alot of country artists use it... ill see if i can find the website i got it on.....

                no more bleeding for anyone

                and no hard crust fingers

                thats what made me stop playing... i hate the hard crusty skin you get on the tops of your fingres

                  I got my guitar about 2 months ago as a gift, can play quite a few chords but I don't know their names =P

                  Maybe I'll post a picture whenever I find my camera =)

                    Ok little tech tip since if played in a few bands and in a GNR cover band for over five years. Keep playing and that will toughin up your fingers but a little trick get a Crazy glue with a brush and cote your tips in it let it dry and wahla an instaint over skin. Alot of pros do this for playing night after night on tour saves your fingers. And yes it will peel off eventyly.....

                    And Jex Nice guitar Fenders have great action. One thing you might try is changing to a smaller Gauge string. Stock strings on a new guitar are pretty thik I always had to change mine. a Good string is a Dean Markley Lite or a medium Acoustic. If you can't find them in England let me know I'll get ya a set......

                      I suggest that you go to competions in your town or places near you if you think you are good. Good rewards come from it.

                        I've been playing for a couple years now. I have a SeaGull made in Canada. Just put some new strings on today and had the action lowered. It wasn't bad before but usually a stock guitar can be tweaked by a pro to make playing easier. Basically the concept is lowering the strings closer to the neck so you don't have to press so hard to make your chord.

                        Mebbe I'll get a pic of my some day too.

                        Hang in there..no substitue for just playing and play with others iron sharpens iron concept.

                        Regards

                          I think I will play a little when I get home.
