well pit,

I broke my collar bone yesterday and would like some suggestions from you what I could do to pass the time. TV and reading are two things, but I can't occupy myself like that for a long time. I can't play video games...I'm typing with one hand here...If you like, share similar experiences here!

Learn how to tap excellently


good idea actually...

I broke while playing football (soccer). I'm a goalkeeper and ran out to get the ball before the oncomming attackers...one of them collided with my shoulder

but i got somewhat lucky since the bone isn't displaced....so no operation

When I broke my hand it blew...it blew oh so hard.

That being said, I don't have any suggestions for you. Cause I don't even remember what I did. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say I watched a **** ton of tv though.

This.

Also, crazy legato exercises, depending on which is injured/which side you play with.

Or a sad one, depending on the side of the fence you are on.
I'm actually surprised no one edited my post to say "Fap excellently" yet.

The whole time I've been reading the posts in the thread I've been thinking "fap, hmmm no one has said fap!!!!! i'll have to say it"


Anyway, seriously you can fap.

If not how about studying up your music theory?

Learn to play drums with your broken collar bone as the crash cymbal, or sharpen your knives on your collar bone, or play football against the New York Giants. You can be QB. Other than that I have no good suggestions. Sucks about your bone.

My guitar was here first so lay hands off my soul.

Legato means "tied note" originally, I think (whatever language it came from). On guitar, it means hammer-ons and pull-offs. Once you get enough finger strength on your neck hand (non-picking hand?), you can just do licks without even picking.

EDIT: yeah, the Dave Murray thing too, like in this solo (0:20-0:23 and 0:30-0:37). While most people (including Murray) start off a legato run by picking the first note, you can just tap the first note real hard to get the necessary volume to carry you through the whole run. It just takes practice, is all.
