Practice playing right then.

why do you have 'walk with me in hell' of all LoG songs? blood of the scribe, set to fail, ashes of the wake, redneck, hourglass and laid to rest would all go before it imo. great song, just not as good as the rest.

ot: how can your index hit other strings? don't you hold your pick with your index and thumb?

I got a paper cut on my finger today and I have no idea how. It just sort of 'appeared'.

But to answer your question you just need more practice. Maybe wear a plaster over the part of your finger which catches the string in the meantime?

Run a high powered electric current through that string. It might cause some crazy feedback, but after the first hundred shocks, maybe you'll learn not to hit your finger off the damn string.

Try digging your pick in less. Also take the pain until you learn, else you'll always play with a plaster on!

My fingernail on my index finger is actually thinner than my other finger from playing guitar. It's never really bothered me though. Grow a pair OP.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.
