Thanks to some amazing generosity, I will also have an electric guitar soon. I am thinking on the days my fingers hurt from acoustic, I can play the electric since the strings are easier to push down on.
I am also now considering buying rocksmith to help teach me as well since I will have an electric to plug in to it.
The first thing I would do is take your guitar to a reputable shop and have them lower your action. It makes a ton of difference. Also, spend the six bucks and buy a can of Finger Ease. It will help immensely when learning to move up and down the neck. Still, get ready, your fingers are going to hurt. Even now, if I play more than usual, they will get sore and I have good pads built up. Don't give up. Pretty soon things start to click as your finger-memory kicks in.
