last night i cut my left hand violently on glass, one cut, bone deep. the skin on my first finger is hanging off while it bleeds everywhere, mutilated it was barley stiched together, further detail is not important as i am typing this one-handed and I cant feel my first two fingers

i cant define myself as a thrash lead guitarist anymore


be careful of your hands

tony iommi had the tips cut off all his fingers, and still went on to be one of the most influential guitarists ever. i'm sure you'll manage.

Ironic questions:

1, Did it hurt straight away or did it take your eyes to realise the pain? (I did something similar with my ring finger & I didn't realise til I actually saw it pissing of blood.)

2, Have you had a session of surgery or surgeries?

Sorry to hear.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

blind anger and adreneline, it hurt SO much less than youd expect, i only felt like crying because i love guitar, but i didnt. the worst part is seeing the flesh hanging off the bone on your fretting hand, the emotional pain was 100x worse than this meaningless, slightly annoying physical pain.

ive only had it roughly stitched up

Dude it's not the end of your guitar "career", just remember that.

Think of iommi and even mustaine, the doctors said he'd never play guitar again.

and: Pics? i want so see what you did exactly, can't get it from the description.

theres no way im going to expose this to the open air yet. i wanted pictures as i was sitting in the emergency room, nobody thought to bring a camera, and they thought i was weird for asking

Ah, touché, well i hope it gets better soon.

nobody so far has given a s'hit about it, so thanks a lot

Wow, I can't imagine what that would feel like. Hope you can get back into the guitar after you heal. I am assuming your left hand is your fretting hand. I hope you will still be able to bend your finger.

What exactly happened?

dont get down about it yet. i mean, there is no point in assuming this will affect your playing. worry about that when it heals.

#21

Look man, just tune your guitar to open G, get a slide and play blues for the rest of your life.

I nearly cut my left index finger off from tripping over and reaching our for a sheet of 1 mill galvasised steel. My hand slid across it like smooth ice with a red streak down the edge. I felt it great my bone, no pian what so ever, just shock at the blood squirting ot in rhythm with my pulse ha. The hospital pulled the skin and tissue back together and stitched it up with 4 stitches . I was lucky.

I was in the back of a river cruiser, in my dads yard. I tripped over a screwdriver on the floor of the boat, and tripped and like you do, reached out to break my fall. The meatal was a piece cut for the transom (the bit where the engine bolts on) and it had a slight bur to it. I could best descride the surface as a piece of broekn glass about 3 foot long.

I had 2 tea towels pwrapper round my hand with blood dripping everywhere. Gross


The worst one was my mates dad who lives next door to me. He was cutting some wood for his garen furniture, when he was using the bench radial arm saw, his hand caught the edge of the blade, and it just ripped his hand all the way up to his nuckles from his little finger to hi middle. It ripped all his tendons, his fingers flopped around all loose. it was sick. His wife fainted when she saw it.

but, if tony ioomi can ge tover it, so can you. Plus, he said that it forced him to approach it in a fresh new way. So it might help you hit a new sound and make a name for yourself.
