I just had them surgically burn my fingertips off.

Worked for Tony Iommi.

I've been a guitar player for alot of yrs also...about 20..and the one thing I regret is learning things wrong (bad habits) especially up and down picking. I would be so much faster if I could do that better:)....also learn the chords properly, dont do the d tune one finger thing in place of real chords all the time, its hard at first but it will get easier....pick your guitar up and play smoke on the water, you know how its in the male dna :rimshot:  these are just my humble opinions.

I'm learning too. My main problem (among many) is that my fingertips tend to stick to the strings. This, unfortunately, plucks the strings sometimes when I lift them up to change chords.
try dipping your finger tips in a little bit of corn starch..not to much cuz it will make a big mess but it does work well to keep your fingers dry and slick, Oh and I agree.....learn louie louie ;D
