Joe Satriani looking for help with finger pain!

Says he can’t maintain calluses, and the pain is becoming a real problem for him.


Well theres the answer to the question of when your fingertips will stop hurting

I don’t have the problem. I have good, thick, smooth calluses on my fingertips that I occasionally have to file down because they get too thick. But I also don’t do any string bending because I’ve never been able to get any good at it, and I suspect that’s the biggest reason I don’t have the problem.

Yeah that can make a difference.

I can play my acoustic strumming and scales etc for hours yet 30min of emulating bbk or BJ on electric and ouch
