Yes, it is normal. You will develop your calluses in a few weeks and you will not have that feeling. Keep playing!

And welcome to GN!

All as you would expect...look back over the many many many posts on the subject. If the pain/numbness/burning becomes too much to bare then take little break. Calluses eventually form and grow deep into the skin over time...its a bit like wearing new shoes.....they may well rub on your ankles and you hate them but they eventually become your favourites :D

you will be posting about aches and pains in your hands/wrist/back etc next week all due to the new shoe syndrome

what did the drummer get on his I.Q. test?....

No harm done. :)

Ya, it will take a bit, but you will work though it. And after they come.. and you think you have it licked..... then you will start doing bends and find out that you need to go through it all agean. :D :D

Reasurance given to other people is never quite the same :)
