Inükshük Classical G.A.S. (11) RE: Classical G.A.S. 13 Mar 03


There's always an up side, rr. I had two serious injuries to my left index with power saws. That smartened me up enough to never risk a third. Then I was dumb enough to remove the tip of the damaged digit while slicing a watermelon. I never had to miss any gigs, but I sure flubbed a lot of breaks while learning to play mostly with the three good fingers. I came out of each injury with increased speed and dexterity.
Now I use an Epiphone electric classical through a Marshal acoustic amp almost exclusively for gigs. It is much easier to finger pick, and flat-picking is cleaner and faster for me. I love it.
Strings are my worst problem. I use Augustine Black and always get extra D strings. They don't last long.
You will heal and be a better player. Take some therapy if you need to.
