Endure the pain.....you'll eventually make calices and stronger muscles.

this keeps calluses forming, but helps w/ the pain, put some super glue over the spot that hurts, then let it dry, then play, i advise not doing this too much though, or you'll become a wuss, only do it when it hurts really fucking bad

haha that sounds pretty weird

I've been playing for quite some time now, I even use a 5 string with 125# as thickest string

And I don't have any problems with the pain anymore, A tip I can give you is Fast Fret, that's stuff you put over your frets and strings that will make them slide better than ever before, it also helps you with the pain of the string (old strings that are full of filth often hurt more!!)

If you hit the strings to hard to get a cool sound. I had this pain after one song. I needed this sound.
And i had to go on. After two days i had no pain anymore.

Yeah it's really nice stuff! I always use it before gigs! it makes you fly all over the neck but you have to get used to it.. and it's nice that it cleans strings too, cuz I play a lot and my strings get dirty verry fast.... need to buy new ones every 6 months, then they begin to break or either sound muddy (beyond cleaning..)

haha yeah, I had to play those 2 songs for ages, for basslessons, around the world is pretty tricky when the intro riff comes back in in the middle of the song and goes even faster... anyways, that stuff does rule..

I've never had any pain in my fingers. I have had callices, but never pain worth complaining about. I play on average almost an hour every night. Maybe it's because I hardly ever do any slides.

ehm, slides will only make you fingers hurt sooner man, not you ehm, 'hit' finger but your left hand, the 'play' finger..
anyways, just loosen up your style a bit and your fingers won't hurt as hell, play a lot of bob marley to achieve this effect
