Doesn't take long to lose it, does it? I'm rarely picking up a guitar these days for reasons I've already spoken of. Tonight I played for two hours in preparation for a gig on Friday - just chords and lots of rhythm and a smattering of fingerpicking (it's a guitar and cajon duo gig so I need to make a big sound) and boy are my fingers sore. I've got an electric gig on Saturday, too. I dread to think what shape my fingers are going to be in by Sunday!
