BOO :( :( :(
« on: June 08, 2013, 10:30:16 PM »
Last Saturday, I was rewarded during my lesson by teach giving me the first two pages of a song I've wanted to learn forever... "Behind Blue Eyes"... Fingerpicking hay-yahhh...

So that night, I'm searing off a pound of halibut in a wok for fish tacos in a bit of peanut oil

Which ends up frying my right hand...

After my second trip to the dr, I am starting to feel a bit better, but my lessons are canned until July.

Pulling that skin over my knuckles is no bueno....  :-[ :-\

Wow, sounds painful.  Hope you heal well, and get back to your playing soon.     Tom.  :)

Thank you!  :)

The second biggest issue other than skin recovery is I flip over in my sleep between 2-4 am, hit the burn, wake up irreparably...  I'm so exhausted I'm cross-eyed.

Hopefully, I will sleep a whole 8 hours tonight.

I am crossing fingers...  8)

Ouch!!!  So sorry to hear this CB.  Years ago I cut the tip of a finger while filleting a fish.  Could not play for 2-3 weeks.  And like you I'd bump the damn finger into something, roll over at night and get jolted awake.  Hang in there.

I "dropped" a big rock on my left "bad-finger" a few years ago and required 7 stitches to sew up the end.  One of the stiches went right through a nerve and every time I moved that finger it felt like somebody had just jolted me with 120V...I had no idea what was going on until the stitches were removed and as that last stitch was pulled through the skin I felt that electrical jolt again...but for the last time.

Needless to say, I didn't play much at that time, either....but having played for quite a while, the motor patterns were stable and soon as I could play again it came back quickly...will for you, too!

Hope you get well soon, CB.....burns have a way of staying tender for a long time.  Take care of it and don't rush things....

Cheers!

Sorry to hear about that CB.......maybe it's just God's way of telling you to stay the heck out of the kitchen and just worry about playin' your gits.   ;D  Sorry, couldn't resist......just kiddin'.

Hope it all heals quickly and well.

I missed seeing you around, Rocket. 

I always appreciated the reality check.

You are absolutely right.  And I will keep practicing.

I've watched "Big Toe" for years.

I often wonder if he plays in an open tuning and just barres the strings with his foot...but it sure looks to me like he's making chords with those toes.

Either way....he's an inspiration to those of us who think we have something to gripe about...not that we ever do  ;D

Cheers!

Hey CB, how about a update on your hand?  I seen a pic and it looked sore.
