I have an ok Ovation acoustic I found on Craigslist, but everyone tells me I need to build up calluses so I can actually start the real practicing. I’ve been just picking and strumming open chords, trying to get them. I think they’re just barely there.
How much a day should I be doing this? How many days does it then probably take? Do I need to slide the fingers on the strings, or will just the pressure be enough?
