Thumbs up

Yeah, that happens, and it's a real bitch because you tend to open the healing wound every time you play, and then the wound just gets aggravated. You just have to play more, so your hands become thick as boot leather all around.

But hey, it's not like you're the first one to experience such a thing. Stevie Ray Vaughn used to play 13-gauge strings, and they'd sometimes rip his fingers open. That's why he'd fix his fingertips with SUPERGLUE, so he couldn't wound them while playing. Must have been fun!

It happens to me all the time, and every time it does, I grow a level in my musicianship. If you can't cut your finger on a string at least 3 times a week, then artficially do it with, say, a razor or utility knife. Then cleanse the wound with vinegar, bleach, and rubbing alcohol. This will make the wound feel much better, and it will also strengthen your fingers.

You can also mix some bleach with ammonia and inhale the fumes. This will cause you to reach a godly state where you will be allowed to play with Chuck Shuldiner, Paul Baloff, John Bonham, Jimi Hendrix, and tons of other great people. The catch is that you don't get to see your family or friends for a really long time after you do it. But dude, it is SO worth it.

Ergh ive never cut my finger on the strings, my fingers skin is fucking thick. Those things that diabethics (or how you spell it) use to make a hole in their fingers dont work on me, you press a button and a needle kinda shoots out, it didnt even hurt man.

Serves him right for using 13's in standard tuning (or whatever tuning he used - I know it wasn't a level whereby he'd need 13's).

Oh, I've never cut my fingers whilst playing. You don't get anywhere by playing 'til you bleed - stop if you feel like the strings are grating and then resume playing the next day when they have recovered somewhat. This way you'll be able to play every day rather than once every two weeks when your cut has healed properly.

Cut my fingers?

My strings are too fucking thick to acctually cut my fingers open! Even the high e String!

I have more wounds on the side of my middle finger because of moving up and down fast.

Once, my band was covering Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" and I was REALLY getting in to it. I started slamming those G5 Chords hard as I could and cut the thumb of my picking hand. I got blood all over my guitar and shirt. I tried to tell them to keep playing anyways but everyone stopped!! It really killed the vibe.
