Does your thumb get cut from doing pinch harmonics? Like the part that scrapes the string. My thumb keeps getting cut by the string and its extremely annoying and makes me stop doing them for a couple days so it can heal up.

Anyone know how I can stop this from happening?
[Besides not doing them lol]

I figured a sort of callous would form but this has been happening to me for the past about 6 months now..

Put duct tape on your fingers.


...that's actually what I did.

and there must be something wrong with your technique, for you to be cutting yourself for half a year....how thick are you strings??

Never gotten any cuts.
I do them all the time.
Mabye it depends on where you hit the thumb.
I hit mine in the red area.

maybe you're hitting the string wrong.
also you don't have to "pinch" it so hard.
Why should I come down?
From here, I can see forever.

Go and do a hard physical job so your skin becomes less girlish, then you won't get cut by those evil guitar strings when scrubbing slightly over them...

thats a tough one. i'm not good at those. mainly because my guitar is really bad. i can do em on any other guitar but rarely on mine. change you strings and don't pick so hard. they sound better when they are played soft anyway.and you don't ahve to use so much of your thumb. if its getting cut thenuse the pick more.
