    ...exactly!  Because playing guitar does give you calluses, while dish washing and hot water does not.

    Fact of the matter is, when you are trying to develop calluses for guitar-playing purposes, keeping your hands dry is suggested...which necessarily means no dish washing!

    ugh.  I can't stand these guys.

      ...rubber gloves if he had to put his hands in water. He also apparently wore gloves if he got in a pool or hot tub. Got to preserve the calluses.

      Anyone who has lived with a professional musician knows that hot water is the enemy of calluses. The "shower molt" seems to always alarm them. lol.

        Every dish washing session was a guitar callus setback!  What's next from Lyin' Photo-op Ryan? Do we get a shot of him serving cheesy grits to a professional poor person?
