Work on your Calluses. Use your fingers.

They will hurt for about two weeks. Work through the pain. When your fingers hurt, that is the time to play. Make it a game. See how strong you can be. Work through the pain, do the work now, and once your calluses are built, nothing will stop you, but you have to build them, and you must understand it is going to hurt, and you need to accept that fact. If you do not build your calluses, you will never find the motivation to learn the guitar. The pain will be too much without calluses. Work hard on your calluses for two weeks straight and you will be good to go. Run finger scales. Practice Chords/Swish Chords. WORK THOSE CALLUSES!
