Thanks for the information. I did Google it and found that I have tried several of the products listed: RockTips is like a fingernail polish and makes the finger tips like hard surface but it is pretty pricey so that is why I started using the New Skin product. So that works well for tender fingers like you get with learning the guitar. But my first finger tip is sort of like it is bruised or something deeper not just a callus problem. So I am currently trying the Gorilla Tips and of course just using the one, since I had purchased those a while back when I was starting guitar and my fingers were really sore so that I couldn’t practice. It is a rubber like sleeve that fits on the end of the finger and there is a big cushioned tip. It is a little awkward for fiddle but at least I am hoping that it will allow me to keep practicing while y finger tip heals.
