So I went to pick out my locker for this school year, and as I went to grab a pen from the secretary she stared at my fingertips for a good three minutes. I had a couple split callouses and they were by no means pretty, but they aren't that bad.

I coughed one of those "Hello, *ahem*" coughs and she just looked at me.

I told her I played guitar and she didn't seem to process it.

This is how most of the staff is at my school.

Anyway, I start school next Wednesday.

I play guitar (which I already said) and I can play clarinet.
What instruments do all you YTers play?

10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 5:39:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
I used to play clarinet and bass clarinet.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 5:43:35 PM EST (GMT-5)
Is bass clarinet much different than clarinet? As far as the fingerings go, I mean.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 5:46:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
The fingerings are the same.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 5:54:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can play the recorder! Hot cross buns. Thats about it. Well, and the djembe i suppose, but very very badly. I only know a couple rhythms.

What did she think it was from?

10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 5:58:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have no idea what she thought it was from. Beside scutting them open yourself or burning yourself with a hot slender object I can't think of anything else that could cause someone's fingertips to look like mine.

And they aren't even that bad at all

Just vertically split, with red showing through and some bent backwards skin. They don't hurt.

i play guitar and piano
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 6:07:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
Violin.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 6:08:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've always wanted to learn piano, but I figure that I should've started at a young age. I mess around with the keyboard a little bit and I know the basic notes, but other than that I am hopeless.

I love violin.

i still dont see how people get messed up fingers from guitar

my dads used to look jacked up, but I play probably 12 hours or so a week (and it used to be more) and mine look normal.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 6:09:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
guitar and bass

(sorry missed that part)
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 6:12:09 PM EST (GMT-5)
Guitar, piano, and I played some decent trumpet in middle school. Never quite got the hang of the flute.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 6:13:52 PM EST (GMT-5)
i just recently started playing piano srsly
you need to learn some chords and some basic music theory and you can go from there

fangers!

I don't see it either. But I often get tiny cuts on my fingers/fingertips and sometimes when I play guitar it opens them wider. The callouses usually keep them from splitting, but if I am doing quick chord changes then they're more likely to split.

But I have seen people with the smushed fingertips and the gnarly looking finger joints. Weird.

the only things I really get anymore is sometimes my fingers on my left hand will peel in little circles and the pointer nail on my right hand is never even, on the downward part its always at an angle


my dad would like constnalty have indentations on his fingers it was weird

PEEANO and GEETAR

My fingers on my left hand peel in little circle too.

I love guitar calluses. You now all are in my "good" book.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/24/10 - 6:53:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I accidentally grabbed the wrong end of my flat iron a few days ago.
F*ck
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/25/10 - 12:44:07 AM EST (GMT-5)
Pudding, why do you love guitar calluses?

And oreo, that does sound like a major f*ck moment. That would majorly suck.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/25/10 - 12:47:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
Bass and berimbau mostly... I dabble with a few others.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/25/10 - 12:50:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
Berimbau? Where did you learn to play that?

It's one instrument I've never heard of, but it looks neat.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/25/10 - 12:54:08 AM EST (GMT-5)
It's a very simple instrument as long as you get rhythm... I just bought one and started playing.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/25/10 - 1:00:55 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's cool. I think it's more fulfilling when you learn an instrument on your own.
