do some finger exersise ie. scales or some pushups on your finger tips.If the guitar is new it needs to be broken in, mine was stiff until i broke it in and now it plays like butter

Yep, the string tension was a problem for me. I switched the high B & high E strings from .011 & .009 to .0105 & .0085. I like it much more that way. The rest of the strings are like a 9-42 set with a .054 on the low B.
