Maybe it's because I like strumming as fast and powerfully as possible, but whenever I really get into it and play punk rock, I always get blood splattered on my guitar. I don't mind it, it's no big deal, probably has something to do with my strumming technique. I don't do it deliberately, just wondering if anyone else gets this?

I reckon you are a jackass. No, I do not get why you would do that.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

It's cool that you don't care and all but you probably really suck at guitar and should probably fix that.

Well I used to beat the shit out of my strings when playing powerchords before, stopped because of that reason, sometimes I would strum so hard I would cut a little chunk of skin off my thumb finger with the strings, it's really stupid, I had to strum really carefully for the next week or so.

Haha I've done worse, I once took off a cast from my broken hand two days after having it put on, exclusively because I didn't want to stop practicing, I was really lucky the bone healed well

Joshua Garcia It's only when I'm strumming like crazy and not giving a fuck, when I play normally my strumming hand doesn't even come in contact with the strings.

I used to get a blood blister or whatever on my index finger but I only broke the skin & bled on my guitar once -- it was pretty br00tz.
Doesn't really happen anymore though 'cuz the new songs are less thrash & slash & more delicate picking (but somehow faster?).

Also I think I don't technically hold the guitar pick the right way, but it is what it is.

You should probably start giving a f**k because bleeding is gross, not caring about it isn't cool and strumming like crazy sounds

And to answer your question, no. I'm at least 99% sure nobody else here gets this problem.

That same exact thing happened to me. In fact I had to have one of my hands amputated. It's cool. I've learned to use ....other body parts to compensate. Barre chords are a bitch though.
#33
My hands will break out and bleed randomly in the winter time thanks to eczema, so yeah.
#34
the only time i ever bled while playing guitar was the first time I broke a string, it was the high e and it cut my index finger a little, was unlucky it happened but lucky that it wasn't worse.


The longest I've continuously played without taking any substantial breaks is 4 hours, I don't play more than that because my fingers will start to hurt. I would never get to the point of actually making my own fingers bleed.
