Sore fretting fingers

Saturday, February 12, 2011 @6:31:00 AM


I just started banjo lesson around Thanksgiving 2010 and am having a great time with my banjo and practice at least 1 hour each day. 

I truly am all thumbs at this time and sometimes get frustrated when my index finger sometimes hits the first string or my thumb hits the forth string when I want to play the third string. 

I'm sure that this will get better with time.  I love all the comments from others,  makes me feel like I' not alone regarding changing chords...D to C and sliding the D to G or A is really a problem that I'm sure only time will cure. 

But how long does it take for my fretting fingers to quit hurting?
