For some reason, all of my friends seem to have been injured doing the thing they loved (music). My friend snapped his high E as he was putting on a new set of strings and it came back up and did a good number to the side of his face, a former drummer of mine dropped a bass drum on his foot and broke a few of his toes, and in my last symphonic class a buddy got a reed stuck in his throat. So feel free to share your dumbass moments. :p

As for myself, I've never injured myself with my guitar other than occasionally fumbling over a cable here or there, but 2 years ago I found out that I have what I refer to as hardcore tinnitus. Everyone gets that little "ringing in the ear" sensation sometimes. As for me, after going to a show or band practice or anything like that, for the next day or two it's like someone is stabbing the inside of my ear with one of those dentist drills. So it's insanely high pitched, really loud, and hurts like all hell. Not the most fun feeling in the world, haha. Even with ear plugs/ear buds, it happens.

Maybe you should just eliminate the idea of being a LEAD guitarist or a RHYTHM guitarist and just come to terms with being a guitarist.

I've got permanent ringing in my right ear now, but it's only faint. I think it's permanent anyway as I have had it since September. I hope it doesn't get any worse/louder

Might want to get that checked. They've got some medicines...and it's definitely something you want to get to early. If it gets worse, you'll be getting injections for your tinnitus.

I have basically an entire garage band set up in my basement, a pretty confined space. Consequently, you can't see the carpet for all the cables everywhere. One day, in my unlimited grace, I tripped over a cable, sent the mike stand falling, and had the mic pop out and hit me on the forehead. It's not a light mic.

There was a myth about Pete Townshend of the Who windmill-picking and he accidentally ploughed his hand into the whammy bar, which punctured his hand. I'm pretty sure it's a myth and didn't happen, but it is a pretty cool story and a warning to all with whammy bars

i was jumping around and my bass swung into my balls somehow.... oh my god... the pain of remembering it...

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.

Thanks for the tip, I think there's a good chance I've got it.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Mudmen190: Lol, he's just very accident prone. I don't know how it happened, all I remember is getting a phone call consisting of a decent amount of grunting and "Dude, we can't practice today. By the way, can you take me to the hospital?" <--Mix the grunting in between words.

i f-ed up my hearing with ipods
i got tinnitus,
but my mind can ignore it,and i only hear it when its silent or the tv is turned down low
plus it can be influenced by stress
so if your chill your tinnitus will be less too
this was a lesson for me to be very very carefull with your hearing :\

I broke my hand when I was a kid and it now hurts to open and close it more than 3 times. Not so great for playing the guitar, seeing as it was my left hand.

The tips of my fingers on my left hand are pretty much shredded and unrecognizable. I don't know how they got that way, but I suspect that strings are to blame.

I got my finger stuck in my wah pedal...
