i recently broke my strumming hand and the hospital has said that i can't play guitar for at least ten weeks... has anyone had this problem before and if so, will it significantly effect my playing when i manage to get on it again??

you'll be fine
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

As long as you let your hand heal properly and fully this is definitely the case.

Yeah it'll be fine but let it heal. Your strumming hand may be a bit rusty when you start playing again but it'll come back pretty quickly. You could still practice with your left (assuming your right handed) hand only to keep you going, I guess.

I guess this is a good time to hone your legato.

I'm no doctor, but I have watched a few episodes of ER and I own the entire M*A*S*H series on DVD.

Do not stop playing guitar. You need to work through this. No pain, no gain. If you stop for 10 weeks you will never get back what you lost.

My advice: get a bottle of superglue and affix picks to your fingers. Wrap your hand in an Ace bandage and go at it hard.

It will hurt at first, actually, it will never stop hurting, but you need this.

I would never knowingly lead you in the wrong direction.

Best of luck!

Sorry, it's all over for you. You will heal, but like a horse with a broken leg, you'll never be the same again. It's time to take you out back and put a bullet in your head. I'm sorry, so sorry

I'd suggest spending the extra time you'll have due to not being able to play the guitar ear training, reading up on theory or doing something else that helps your guitar playing without actually requiring you to be holding a guitar.

yeah i think i'll just be reading and ear training for the next couple of weeks
