Ipad gaming gave me a callus at to of finger

Awful, since few days I noticed a flat area at top of my finger and believed it's been caused by a burn I didn't noticed.

But today I realized it was a callus. Usually you get a callus because you do too much manual work, but at this part of the finger, it's a clear callus from ipad gaming. Weird, I probably played too much games using a lot of swipe commands.

No I don't play that much particularly those last days. Is it just me?

Too much manual labour?

You get calluses from being a man. Enjoy it. Show it off to your friends.

Take up guitar. I have almost no feeling in the finger tips of my left hand because of the calluses from playing guitar.

The day where my only worry is calluses from golf will be the day where I am truly happy.

dude you have to constantly play guitar for at least 3 hours (and I mean consistently, no breaks) with .53-.13 gauge strings to even be "sore" from playing guitar.

It takes me more than that now. I can't remember the last time my fingers hurt from playing. Now I know it's time to take a break when my fingers get all raggedy and dead skin starts flaking off.

When I first started though? On an acoustic with cheap, abrasive strings that I'm pressing too hard on with my girly, non-callused fingers? Didn't take long.
