I think I would cut off my Right Ring finger. I would use that the least out of all of them. My left hand is a fretting hand, so I wouldn't cut anything off of there. Maybe then Right Middle.

I would probably use an axe as the weapon of choice. You can't really feel it then, or so Iv'e heard. A saw would be awful. But a really sharp knife wouldn't be so bad. Scissors would hurt, and would take a lot of effort that could just be done quicker and less painful with an axe.

Don't worry, I don't plan to cut any fingers off for at least a few months. Most likely over a year, though. Or never. Who knows. I need some kind of way to show my doctors that I'm serious.
Just a teenage girl who loves playing guitar way too much, if that's even possible.

Left pinky. Least used on the fretting hand, and losing any fingers on the right would change my writing position and dynamic, and I write far more than play guitar.

Right pinky.

Here's the catch though -- it would be someone else's finger.

You are now using UG Classic.

left ring finger 

don't need it, not for playing videogames with a controller or writing (typing on keyboard would be a struggle at first, but i would adapt)

i play guitar left handed, so i need all the fingers on my right hand to fret
i only need my thumb and pointer finger on my left hand to pick
i dabble in piano, so i think my left ring finger would be a loss, but i could make up for it with my left pinky and middle finger

I've had carpal tunnel for the last few weeks and have been unable to use one of my index fingers so I'd probably go with that since it didn't inconvenience me much.

If you arent being taken serious you need to find new dr's, dont self harm to try and prove a point because that's only going to get you into a psych ward. My great grandpa had the tips of fingers sliced off when he reached under a mower deck too soon after it had been turned off. It wasnt a pretty site, about the only plus side is not having to clip fingernails. Obviously you need your fret hand but what if you want to learn how to start finger picking?

right pinky since im pr sure i dont actually use it for anything
losing a pinky would throw off the overall hand balance too much

I had a whole thing with wanting to cut off my right pinky towards the end of secondary school, it probably made sense in my head at the time. In any case I heard that losing pinkies fucks with your grip strength so it didn't seem so expendable anymore.

The way I type, I only ever use the pinkys to hold Shift on the keyboard or just use my phone.

That said probably right ring finger cause I'm a lefty and what does a ring finger even do?

That said, this morbid question is concerning. D:

Right pinky. I use my right ring for gallops and triplets when I play fingerstyle on bass. Pinky does nothing useful that way.

It's funny, I think most guitarists would be more devastated losing functioning in their non-dominant hand than their dominant.

I wasn't being taken seriously by my doctor and a suicide attempt put me in a psych ward, but also showed them I'm serious. I promised someone I wouldn't do any more attempts, and so I decided that cutting off a finger would probably work. I originally was going to do something more extreme, but then that would f*** up my life too much.

I watched a video of someone cutting their fingers off with an axe. It wasn't THAT bad of a thing to see. Not that that would change my mind.

Meh. I can use my pinky. Still, loosing a finger is more serious than loosing a toe. I would need it to be serious, but not life-threatening. Or affect my permanent medical health too much.

It feels like everything I post somehow turns into a conversation about my mental health. Even questions guitar related.

You're assuming you won't make a hash of it.
Which you probably would with an axe, anyway, especially if you're going to try and take a finger off your dominant hand. Even a hatchet is going to be awkward.
Seriously, if you're doing the cutting with your off-hand, use a band or table saw. Immerse the hand to be cut in ice water before and after to numb it, and cause vasoconstriction to reduce blood loss.

From what I've seen of your posts, they are all about your mental health from the get-go. Or your lack of mental health. Wasn't there one last week about anorexia?

I think without even realizing it, every post you make is a cry for help, and it sort of kills me knowing I'm just some jackass on a guitar forum who can't effectively help you the way you need. Just know that self harm, whether physical or emotional, is never okay and there are people who care about you, whether you know it or not.

I'm ambidextrous. I use my left hand for some things and my right hand for others. I play guitar right handed because violin uses the fretting hand as the left weather you're right or left handed. I just got used to that. Ice water is a good idea. I would constrict is anyways, probably. 

Well, yeah. I actually on that one wanted to see how long it took for someone to guess anorexia. It technically didn't start off as a post about anorexia. That type of thing is only my Pit posts. A question about guitar amps becomina a conversation about hanging is really awkward.

Maybe every post on the Pit is. Probably, yeah that sounds about right. Guitar questions are about guitar, though, not a cry for help. Maybe it's my signature being a bit of one. 

Meh. Therapists can't effectively help me the way I need, so I guess you're on equal footing as them. 

I don't see what's wrong with self harm. Sometimes it's that or suicide. Your pick (except that my girlfriend already has picked for me).

I know at least one person loves me. I promised them I wouldn't commit suicide, starve myself completely to death, or purge food.

Which one was it? I don't remember it. I actually think someone said something that triggered me (in the real sense of the word, not the crybaby sense) and I went off. Maybe it was my fault. Just like everything in life. 

I think that there was at least one where I didn't start it.
