So, today at work I managed to cut my left index finger on the last digit right after the knuckle, with a box cutter, and It was pretty deep.

I went to the hospital and because of it's position, it needed three stitches. Oh, and I suppose the fact that you could see my bone helped to. After I was all stitched up, I had to get a tetanus shot unfortunately, and this one hurt a lot more than normal.

After all was said and done, the doc said to take it easy on my finger, and he said "No guitar until the stitches are out," which will unfortunately be anywhere from 7-10 days

I tried to play anyways, and it hurt like a mother. It even hurts when I'm typing this, lol. Because of a simple mistake, many of my favorite things I now cannot do. Play guitar, "activities" with the GF, play WoW, fap...

Sad, I know Any ideas on what I can do until the stitches are out?

damn man i'm sorry, that **** ****ing sucks. that's one of my worst fears. i think you should study theory until your stitches are out. it's definetly not a waste of time and the knowledge will greatly help your guitar playing.

I was gonna say this, start out with aint no rest for the wicked, freebird intro, and ballad of curtis loew. those are some easy ones thatll give you different types of slide playing
Bands I must see in concert
Silvertide
The Black Crowes
Jackyl
Black Stone Cherry
AC/DC
StoneRider
Freedomhawk
The Darkness and/or the sideprojects of the band members

Theres more. But those are the main ones

So basically you just strum and as it says in the name, slide from fret to fret as tabbed out?

Like I said, no idea

Heh, it's probably been far longer than 10 days since I last picked up my guitar.

When I sprained my wrist I took it as an opportunity to relax and not feel like I should be practicing (guitar and piano) every spare moment. It's pretty freeing. You'll probably be fine, just find something else to do, like study up theory.

Try playing without that finger. Or just write a ****load of music on Guitar pro or something.

If I do though, I'll most likely start a bad habit. Just like I did when I first started playing and I could only down pick. Alternate picking was a bitch toget into after a year of nothing but down picking

And that's actually a really good idea...

No. but seriously. 10 days isn't bad. In fact, it's quite quick from what you described tbh.

Hah, yeah, that's what I thought. It's only about 1/2-1/3 inch long, but you could see the bone, so yeah... Not too pleasant

The doc said I could've gone with 1 stitch, but because of the location and how much it will be bending, I needed 3
