Okay.. .It's been about 6 weeks since I whacked my index finger on my picking hand (arguably the most important digit to a guitar player) and it's starting to look a bit like... well, I just won't go there. Needless to say, it's on its way to where good nails go after they, uh, get damaged, turn black and start to fall apart.
The question is when? I've already started modifying my playing to accommodate several weeks without a fingernail, but it would be nice to have the old nail say "adios". Maybe I should help it along, or have a doctor help it along?
Sam's Chowder House - Played there with Mark Kostrzewa and had a wonderful time. Sam's is having music every Tuesday night and we'll be back there Friday the 6th of Nov and Tuesday the 17th of November. Met Bruce Jenkins, a great sports writer for the Chronicle whose columns I have read for many years.
talk to you soon, Mike.
