D’oh! Temporary setback

So much for the callouses…:man_facepalming:t3:


Ouch !! Time to learn triads with 2nd 3rd and pinkie :wink: Every cloud. :sunglasses:

ouch, hope it gets better real soon. Maybe a bit of slide is in order?

Ouch! That has to hurt. It might be fun to try to play some of the D A E three chord songs with just your 2nd, 3rd and 4th fingers.

Brutal Joshua, I hope you survive! :rofl:

Hey, at least it’s not on the tip, so maybe no barre chords but open chords might be OK?

Unfortunately the lightest touch even to the tip is knee buckling. First time in my 57 years I have nearly fainted from pain, and I am no stranger to injury. I had to lay down on the floor before I made it to the couch! Sweating buckets all the way.

I may have shattered the tip, but the joint doesn’t hurt, so I hope not.

Triads sound good. Alternative fingerings. Strumming dynamics and finger style patterns.

Hopefully I heal before the lack of coherent song playing drives the family bats.

What happened then? Clearly not just a cut.

I dropped a trailer hitch on it.



That sounds really painful! I hope it heals quickly.

I may lose my nail, good thing I decided to play right handed.

OMG! Ouch!! That’s some bruise too!! :scream: :flushed:
Hope it heals quickly!!

Take care!

Oh that had to hurt. Usually, I just walk into trailer hitches.

Flip the guitar over and play Hendrix style.

hope you heal fast!

Ooh man , that makes me wince. Take care.


Time to get stuck into the practical theory course! :joy:

Ei, ei, ei, doesn’t look good :flushed:. Get well soon!

Holy moly, that looks bad. :open_mouth: No wonder the pain though, so many nerve ends on that soft spot before the actual tip of the finger. - Wishing you a very good and speedy recovery! :pray:

Ouch. That has to be a crush, not just a cut. The entire tip is bruising!


That would do it. Hope it heals quickly!
