I see a lot of German references, I can't see if you are - but, having said that, Wilkommen! I am originally from Namibia (guys must Google if they don't know where), now in South Africa. Namibia used to be Suedwest Afrika - as in Deutsch Suedwest Afrika, so we all have a smattering of German.
All of no consequence - I hope you will enjoy the site. Oh yes - glad you have given it up, well done
Hi I've just started teaching myself to play guitar. However, I've practiced enough to toughen the tips of my fingers. My problem is that after I've practiced for about 20 min. The tips of my fingers begin to mash out and touch the strings beside the string I'm pressing. My question is this, am I pressing too hard on the strings and if I ease off the string how do I prevent fret buzz? If anyone had this problem please Get back with me for the solution.
