I haven't played for about a year (twenty years of playing before that), but yeah, the hard fingers make it easier to move around the fret-board. Not too good when you're stroking your Misses' juicy bits though...
si senior, that's about all I know in Spanish. but yes that's the idea. play hard buddy
That's the basic purpose
First you develop calluses, then later your skin just becomes thicker - no rough bits.
The calluses help harden your fingertips and over time, you develop a very sensitive touch. It truly allows you to make your guitar talk.
thats how it works
Yes, if your new and no callus's it hurts after playing awhile. I have had callus's on my fingers for over 30 yrs and hasnt done anything to me yet.
