Topic: Ouch!!

Smashed the tip of the middle finger of my left hand with a 22 oz framing hammer yesterday. Looks like a firecracker was stuck in the end of my finger then lit.  Might be a while before I'm back to pickin' again. sad

Music is a tribal experience, and it is about connection.  Figure out how to reach in and change their emotions. Learn how to put them in a mood. That’s what music is for.”-JH.

Its the little mistakes that become great. and when it falls in place, the feeling is  indescribable.

That thing won't heal fast !!  Good time to take up something like Dobro for a few months....

Ouch, I feel your pains, both the physical one and the anguish at being unable to play. Heal well and quickly, my friend.

I lost every finger nail when was a diesel mechanic, and some toe nails too! I feel your pain. Ice might help?

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Re: Ouch!!

Man, that really sucks, DE ... brutal. Everything heals eventually, but lets hope yours does quickly, and back close to its original shape. Now you'll have to use your other hand when a bad driver cuts in front of you. lol

Re: Ouch!!

That's exactly what happened to the ring finger on my right hand.  I broke the middle finger with the same stroke, but didn't now it because the ring finger smarted so badly.  I was playing bass then, but couldn't fret a note for about four weeks. I hope your recover is quicker.

Re: Ouch!!

Thanks for all the sympathy and kind sentiments everyone.

The finger was unwrapped today and after cutting away dead skin its about 1/8" shorter than it was.  Good news is that the nerve endings were damaged so I'm not really feeling much pain.  I heal quickly according to the doctors that have treated a multitude of injuries I've incurred over the years from doing stupid things so I expect it shouldn't be but 2-3 weeks before I can use it.  Right now I'm having fun trying to figure out alternate ways to form chords with my other fingers.  I can pretty much play anything that only has 3 chords and is in the keys of A or D although the chord changes are a little slow. smile
