Lost tip

Well…will b awhile before I get back to learning th banjo.

Lost the tip of my index left finger, just before the knuckle. Might have to learn a different way to play. Membership ran out while I was away racing wagons…so I’ll wait to renew after I get healed up. Been 3 weeks…they said about 6…so half there.

Youwch! I’m very sorry to hear about that.

Not trying to sound too upbeat, but in case you didn’t know: Tony Iommi made a pretty good living playing guitar with missing tips from two of his fretting fingers and Django Reinhardt was world class with two paralyzed fingers on his fretting hand. I suspect you’ll figure out a way to make it work.

Best of luck and let us know how it goes when you get back into it.
