Guitar Lessons and Sore Fingers

When your child gets the bug to try to learn guitar, prepare her for some learning pains. When your child first starts, her fingers will be sore from pressing strings against the neck of the guitar to form notes. At first it will be rough, though eventually calluses will form on her fingers and strumming will become easier. And, if your child is passionate about learning, she won’t mind the pain.
