Re: Damn!!!

ouchie. That sucks.

I know this is really off topic but related to fingers and playing. I read once where Joe Satriani snowboards... Now that's a pretty dangerous thing to do when you're profession is playing music.

I tried that excuse. My wife's response was very short and ended with "off"!

Re: Damn!!!

I've cut my right index finger I don't know how many weeks ago. It's still not fully healed. So these past few weeks I've kept my pick between my middle finger and my thumb when I played. Which resulted in me playing at about 80% of the skill level I normally play at. It's not nice having to hold back.

Re: Damn!!!

About two months after I met my girl I accidentally slammed my left index finger in her car door. It was all black and nasty. I couldn't play for a week and when I did it was rather painful.
Hope you all heal soon!

Re: Damn!!!

You know, you dont have to use your fingers to play the guitar. There are other things you can use to shred. (hint....my nick). Go figure... :P

We'll consider this a screwdriver related thread for the sake of continuity
