It may seem small.

Insignificant, even.

But the small cut I received at work yesterday on my left hand's middle finger, it hurts like hell if I attempt to play in dropped tuning. So...... I play around in standard.

I got a paper cut right across my thumb which stopped me from playing slap bass, simply cause the string of the bass felt like razor wire.....

Papercuts suck balls. Luckily they don't last too long, just a day or two.

Getting a blood test


that stops you from playing? It heals in less than a day. Last time I got one they couldn't even draw blood on my left hand fingers, like the lancet went in but it didn't even get all the way through the callouses.

From the arm. The guy who did it sucked at his job and had to go in like 4 times just to hit a vein. I could play, just for only 15 minutes or so before it started to get sore.

ah yeah I never have problems from those either, but I guess if they rip your arm to shreds in the process it could cause problems.

broke my pinky around the knuckle..took me out of football cuz if i would have played it would have effed it up pretty bad and it would have been a few thousand dollars for surgery to fix it..also took me out of guitar hero and guitar playing.

but i cheated..i had one of those things called (i think) a soft cast or something. molded to my hand and wrist to keep my pinky straight to let it heal. i took it off quite a bit for video games/guitar. i'd put it back on when i noticed my pinky curving and it being basically impossible for me to straighten it on my own.

nowadays it still kinda curves unless i really focus on straightening it, but after awhile it hurts. i can still play guitar though, so it's all good. although, when i straighten it as much as i can, i can flick it and it'll wiggle kinda like some people can do with their fingers after bending them certain ways. i get bored, i play with stuff, found it out one day waiting for something. i ended up typing way more than i intended to...
...why?

I'm not a pussy, so nothing stops me. I played with cuts all over my fingers and pretty much ripped them right up to the bone. It was metal.

Not really an injury but I suffer from hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) in my hands. It sucks because no matter what my hands get so sweaty that it becomes impossible to play. And there really isn't any cure so I just gave up playing the guitar.

braking my finger really sucked, but right now i cant play cause my thumb hurts really bad from some reason and i cant hold on to the neck

I've been jamming and bruising my thumb at the joint playing basketball (keeps recurring every few days right after I think it's better I jam it again) so it constantly hurts and makes barre's a bitch. Still playing through it like a champ though.

When you bite your fingernails too far down.....you can barely touch anything without it hurting, so guitar playing is certainly a lot more difficult.

But not impossible.....

Haha, at a lot of the comments...I have a torn tendon in on my right pinky finger (last joint up) and it mosves in 3 directions that it shoulder...up to the right and then down. It looks like it's kind of swolen.

This can't be fixed so it's a good thing that you don't need a right pinky finger to play the guitar!
