Hey, I know this may sound dumb, but about 2 days ago I cut my finger (almost the whole tip off) and it is my left hand which I use for fingering. It only hurts when I do certin chords in certin songs. Do you have any suggestions so it won't hurt as much anymore? (It is my pointer finger which I use alot while playing)

Is it too much to ask how you cut yourself this badly? Just curious really because it sounds pretty bad

he didnt say that he didnt..

i wouldnt apply pressure. could get infected. would take longer to heal. even with a finger condom on, the pressure is going to bust it open. yay.

I KNOW WHAT TO DO!!!!!!!!! My bassist in my band has done this when he had some masive cuts on he's fingers and we had to play another 8 songs at this gig!!!
buy lodes of band aids... put about 4-5 on and make sure it stays on!!!


This should bloody work!

I second waiting. Think long term. You want your cut to heal properly, you don't want to screw anything up further. I know it really sucks, but that's probably your best bet. You can use your downtime to work out your left hand with one of those springy things or stress balls or whatever.

I'd suggest if there is now that you could stop playing until it heals then put a band aid on it. I cut my thumb one time and just put a band aid on and playedk, it kind of kills your sound though.

I nearly took off my finger attempting to pull out a string from my acoustic guitar. The scarring is quite relevant, I couldn't play for weeks. Let it rest. It will do you good.

I'd definately wait until it heals, but use the time to build strength/dexterity in your other fingers. Maybe do alot of 2-handed tapping or scales (be inventive!). But you'll do more damage in the long run if you play using it.

Flip the guitar over and play left handed for a week or so (or right handed, if you're left handed already)

dont play with the tip [where it's cut] try using the pad off your finger

I was just going to say to learn to play with your other fingers. That's what I did when I got a deep cut that took the callous off my left index finger.
