I was cutting a frozen bread bun and the knife went through and it sliced halfway through the tip of my left index finger.

It's had to be glued, stitched and bandaged up and won't be able to play guitar for some time, so i duno if it will be healed for my gig in just over 2 weeks, it definatley won't be healed for recording on wednesday.

So basically i feel like shit since i can't play guitar for ages, and guitar is what i do in my spare time, at college and at work. And that it was my stupid fault for this.

Can someone please cheer me up, or give advice on what do do in my spare time when i'd normally play guitar? Infact i'd be happy for some hollow sypathy

another life ruined by knifes, what is the world coming to...... see if you can find something else to do, it will probably be hard but might be worth it

You could still play guitar, just do it 3 fingered, you'll build up more strength in those fingers

1. cutting the tip is not cutting your finger off.
2. use a slide over the bandaged finger and just fret the note harder (as usual) so not to hurt your finger
3. Why were you cutting frozen bread? defrost it, it's a lot softer then.

about 6 months ago I broke my hand and so did the other guitarist in my band and we both learned to play guitar, pretty efficiently, with the rest of our exposed fingers.

all we did was set up our guitars in our case and tap everything, kind of like how you would play a piano. get creative just because you messed up your finger doesn't mean you can't play. It just makes it harder to play

Start taking drugs and become a man*****.


Or train stuff with your picking hand (tremolo, string skipping etc.).

You won't be able to play it well in 2 weeks, especially if it's a deep cut, and especially if it's on the very tip. I cut my finger about 2 months ago, not on the actual tip, and couldn't play without pain for at least 3 weeks.

Play with your other 3/2(splints?) fingers. Or tap. Or build left hand skill. Learn to gallop pick like a b*tch.

[quote=" ]So i nearly cut off one of my fingers

Really? I'm nearly interested.


EDIT: I just read your actual post and I realise now I was a little too harsh.
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.

Just play with your other fingers. Sounds like a good opportunity to strengthen your less dominant fingers.
This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is MINE.

Just remember...Iommi lost the tips of 2 of his fingers, and he still plays

Buy a slide and put it over the finger you've hurt?
Or just learn to play things without it.

At least in future you'll be more careful

Did u kno taht Tony Iommis fingerti[ps were cut off


Yea, he's awesome that learn'd to play with artificial fingertips. But my point is that I probly won't be able to play at my first college gig this term and I was really looking forward to it. And also that I can't record or just play guitar in general. It makes me feel dickless

Anyone got any ideas on what I can do to ocupy my time? I've been told to fap in this thread a few times but fapping is lame
