Yep I just broke the index finger on my left hand. So I'm asking the pit for anything I could do to kill some time while it heals (aside from playing guitar with 3 fingers). This will give me an excuse to work on my 7 finger tapping but what else would you guys do to make time go by fast?

Not until tomorrow when my parents leave for a week (unfortunately I still live with my folks )

And I already work more than full time. I'm getting 60 hours a week roughly. But for the remaining 12 hours of the day I would basically just play guitar, eat supper, take a good sh1t and go to bed. But now, I probably won't be playing guitar as much (at least for a few weeks) so I need another activity. Although, I have discovered that a cast works great for barre chords and slides.

Well I suppose I could. After all, we are probably related (we have the same last name)

The funny thing is, it's RARE that anyone casts a finger.
For a phalange(The name for the bone before the finger tip) which is the most common part to break, then it usually depends on how bad the fracture is, it's 99% standard in the world that it's a splint.

If he put you in a full cast, then he must be worried about it migrating or becoming a complete fracture, usually it's in your metacarpal & carpals at that point, even then, it's rare to cast.

All the medical mumbo jumbo aside though...

Fap, Fap, Fap!

Been there done that. Before I started playing guitar, I admit I was just a couch potato. I've seen every single episode of Family Guy, Futurama, Simpsons, Bleach, Death Note, Dragonball/Z/GT, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc.

Well I'm something of a biologist so I know all about human anatomy and I know it's rare to put it in a cast. I asked the doc why he didn't just use a splint and he then showed me the x-ray image. I saw 4 cracks and he said he found a total of 6. So I think it's safe to say I need a bit more than a splint.

I was going to say to play guitar, but since you already said that then how'd it happen?

No I was at work. A piece of wood got caught under the wheel of a pallet jack with about 6000 pounds on it. When I moved the piece of wood, I said "ok I got it" so my colleague pulled but my hand got caught under it and the wheel rolled over my finger.

Hehe, I broke my middle finger on my right hand a couple weeks ago. Could still play guitar, and it gave me an excuse to flick people off all the time.
