Wow, what a coincidence. I happened to be right, but I forgot that you're still in Portland. :-)
why spell it right here?
My advice, get the heaviest strings you can, and play, play and play. Also get dome of those Chines balls ( I forget what they're caled) and spin them in your hand when you are just chilling- they're good for the tendins in your forearm. Also those "tension grips" with the indevidual finger springs, and use those too. The main thing is to learn muscle memory and tone the tendins0 and of course calluses.
My personal advice is also buy a Beatle guitar book and learn chords by playing songs...it's less discouraging than constantly doing scales and such.
