2 years ago I got 5 guitar lessons from my wife for my birthday. I took them, loved it, but quit after lessons. I just (today) started lessons again. When I took my measly little 5 lessons 2 years ago I never played enough to get finger callous. I have been playing for the last few weeks in preperation for my lessons and DAMN do my finger tips hurt like hell! It's to the point where I'm worried that I may be doing damage or something.
So what should I do? I NEED to keep practicing but my fingers hurt. Shoud I just keep on keeping on (Joe Dirt) or stop for a while, or what?

Thanks fer da help.
