Hi all – So I’ve been practicing/playing for a couple of weeks now and I’ve noticed that the longer I practice the more difficult it is to play clean sounding chords. My calluses are building but it almost seems as if the “dents” in my finger tips are deeper or don’t bounce back the longer I play and it is harder to get a clean sound and I wind up pressing down harder on the strings. My guess is that tension is not my friend when changing chords. Is this common? Do I just need to be patient as the calluses become firmer or is there something else I should be trying?
