Many years ago I tried to learn how to play a three-quarter size guitar; I made it about three months before I gave up entirely. My fingers were bleeding from the strings... really rough on my fingertips. Now trying to learn the ukulele, yes it hurts but the tension means than picking and strumming and forming chords is just much easier and the entire instrument fits between my folded arms... so at the moment I’m enthusiastic enough to wonder why anybody plays the guitar anymore at all.
