I've been playing for about 18 months and am progressing well but am struggling to develop callouses on my left hand fingertips. I swapped to medium light strings and they started to form but the tone suffered. For pull offs, I have to trap string between fingertip and nail, a push off I guess. Any suggestions please.

Playing for 18 months and how much do you pratice a day? If you don't pratice much then the callouses take a long time to get there. I practice about 4 hours a day and wish I could give you some of my callouses. They will come with time and pratice.

No secret here. Go with heavier strings, if that doesn't do it, go heavier.....and press harder. Make m sore, the fingers will start protecting themselves.
