The title was just a parody (I dunno if thats the right word). Being here for damn near 4 years, I have seen many people post threads about injuries, etc. and asking what they should do, instead of going to a doctor\hospital, those morons post here asking for advice on what to do.

This happened last night about 10:30. It took 30 minutes just to drive to the damn hospital.
Yes, I damn near cut it off. Were it not for the bone, I would have no index finger on my left (fretting) hand. Went right to the bone.
And yes I did go to the ER and got 12 stitches in it.
The cut is between the knuckle and the first joint, about 1/4 inch from the knuckle.


So the doctor said I shouldn't play guitar till I get te stitches out (7 - 10 days).
Well, I was gonna rewire my EPI LP.
I was working on my pedal board and cutting some padding for a strap and slipped.
Nasty cut.

So, I have another strap I am making, working on a 2x12 cabinet (Which is on hold until I can afford the speakers, just needs the tolex/other covering), the pedal board I was working on when I cut myself, re-wiring my Epi, and working on a Piezo Acoustic Pickup for my little nylon string guitar.

Any other suggestion on what I can do so I don't go crazy (crazier?)

Oh, and here is kind what my cut looks like (Don't have a camera ATM).

read stuff on theory so your mind is still active and you're getting that musicness out of your day even if you cant play it.

Why is your finger a Pokeball?


+1.

That was my first impression too.
You are like a hurricane
There's calm in your eye.
And I'm gettin' blown away
To somewhere safer
where the feeling stays.
I want to love you but
I'm getting blown away.

Study music theory and work with your right hand (tremolo picking, alternative picking )

If you DID READ the post, then you would know that the thread title was poking fun at the other idiots on here that injure themselves then come on here to ask what they should do.

Would love to, but in the living room?
And all day? I don't have that much endurance

About time there was a thinly veiled masturbation suggestion.

Seriously, it was almost 21 posts.

WAT
How about just send a ship at the speed up light directly to the sun, and the gravity will pull it towards the sun, thus speeding it over the speed of light.

Whats a pokeball (I'm guessing some pokeman reference)?
And the picture was done in Paint, cut-away view. The black part in the middle is a representation of the bone. The red part shows how deep the cut was. The white part is what didn't get cut.

Sorry, I really suck at drawing
