I havent been checked out by a doctor, but I am pretty confident I broke my pinky on my right hand.

its quite swollen and purple.

anyway I did it playing (american) football when I went to tackle somebody.

I would be really upset, but since its the pinky on my picking hand it isn't that big of a deal.

If I were to have a choice on which finger i had to break, it would be the one I did laugh.gif
I dont do very much tapping, and when I do it doesn't involve the 'little one'.



anyone else struggle with major injuries like this? i.e. broken pinky on fretting hand??? unsure.gif

I played rugby at school once and even before beginning the match i hurt my stretched my pinky when i was trying to practice catch. I guess American football and guitar playing dont go together that well:P

you're tough, I'll give you that, usually you want to get some weight behind a tackle so tackling with the pinky I give you cred for that! wink.gif

No real injury but after this summer I've been digging up the entire garden and put a couple thousand stones as a terrace and walking path. i think the weight of each stone was like 3-4 kg and I've been lifting them with my right hand mostly. It's been about a month since I finished and still I have a lot of pain in my indexfinger, in two of the joints. I started to have a lot of pain in the mornings during this job and still I feel it in my index finger. I suspect I will have to stick with that for a while longer, if not for the reminder of my life. I'm just glad it's on my right hand finger and not the fretting hand.

Get well soon! :-)

That's bad news , but its cool you can see the positive side of it (injuring finger that is not so used when playing)..But I recommend you going to doctor as soon as possible!!! I never had such injuries myself and since I started playing guitar , I was careful to avoid activities that can cause such injuries (some sports , skating, skateboarding , rollerblading and similar smile.gif )

I'm a climber (sport climbing on rock and ice) and always wonder how smart that is (considering guitar playing). My fingers are very strong which is good for bending but I guess that's why they are slow too. But luckily I never hurt myself. A lot of my friends tore tendons and ligaments but they don't play an instrument.
The past few month I got fat. Oh no even more weight on my fingers.

haha I wish!

weirdest thing is that I don't really remember it happening, I just remember it hurting alot after the tackle... and I kept playing for another 2 hours or so... I probably should have stopped. I guess the adrenaline made it not hurt so bad.
