So Saturday night I broke my left (fretting) hand in a car accident. Seeing as I can't play guitar for quite some time and I'm also now on a leave from work, I have a whole lot of time to kill, and a whole lot of nothing to do.

Basically I need some suggestions for things I can do to kill time that only take one hand, or a new one handed hobby to take up. Any ideas?

Fap vigorously.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

become a dubstep artist

all you need is a keyboard + mouse and the ability to torrent software.

I can link you to a browser based game which can occupy your time and doesn't require speed or anything like that.
#7
TV only requires one hand for a remote.
You can even do it with no hands if you're feeling adventurous.

Or Theramin if you have the money.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

I suggest you get accustomed to masturbating with your other hand.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

Aww dude, the fretting hand is the one you need.

I guess you could work on alternate picking and/or string skipping with your pick hand. Maybe picking speed. Not as fun but its still practice.

Get ridiculously good at legato.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

I broke my fretting fingers once. It was 3 simple fractures on 3 of my fingers at the joints.

I still never stopped playing.

I had a friend who was held at gunpoint as a cashier. The robber told him to give him all the money in the register and what not. Apparently my friend then replied, "Would you like a slurpee with that?"

That could actually be fun, I might just give that a go.


And to those suggesting fapping...what the hell do you think I have been doing for 2 days. I'm just assuming that after a week or so something is going to get really sore...

take up anal masturbation? also if you can't actually fret, try to learn to finger pick open notes. just learn basic patterns, like that one Merle Travis pattern:

Middle | X     X       | X     X
Index  |   X       X   |   X       X
Thumb  | X   X   X   X | X   X   X   X


it's not quite the same to learn it without fretting, but it will at least give you something practical to work on on guitar for the time being, and will be a great skill for when you are able to use your fretting hand again.

and you could practice singing, reading music, ear training, or other general music skills.
