Bummer...and I should know. Five years ago I was cutting off all the reinforcing rod that remained sticking out of the top of the cinderblock walls that had concrete poured into them. I was using an angle grinder. I WISELY swapped the light leather gloves for the VERY heavy welding gloves that were nearby. Anyhoo...my right hand got pulled into the block cavity and that grinder chewed though the right hand glove and severed the tendon right on the top of where that last joint on my right pointing finger is.
Now it's frozen as if I have just one long bone. I "point" at everything now.
I'm an excellent flat-picker and I actually thought of suicide after everything healed...seeing as my playing feeds me and is a great part of what I am...no...it's all I am. Other than my guitar, I'm an uneducated bum. It was a really bad trip for me, and, truthfully, I thought of checking out.
But now I'm back to where I was. It's like it never happened. I just had to retrain my "second nature" picking. Not easy...
All in all...I feel deeply for all our military that come back home maimed...wayyyyyyyy worse than me or you...resulting from helping ignorant savages that want all of us dead.
