hello, im a nub to the string forum so bear with me. i find that after practicing for 4+ hours with my band the tips of my fingers on both hands are really starting to burn. i can play through it but i dont know if this is bad for my fingers. ive built up callus (sp?) after 3 years of playing and just normal playing doesnt bother me anymore but after 10+ hours of playing straight i can really feel the burn. usually a couple days after the tips of my fingers start to peel and i have to rebuild the calluses again. i play mainly finger style on a rockbass corvette 4 string with stock strings (i love the feel of old strings) and a johnson p 4 string with stock strings. im open to changing strings but i pretty much hate flatwounds. are there any roundwounds or other types of strings that are easier on the fingers so i dont have to worry about this as much?
