    On my trip to colorado last week I fell and broke my left wrist. I'm planning on getting some good tapping practice over the summer- I wrapped an ace bandage around the nut of my 5 to keep the strings from resonating freely. Now I can tap away. Has this happened to anyone else? any suggestions on what I can do to stay "in shape?"

    I feel your pain, kinda. My right foot is in a cast for 4 more weeks (been 2 already).
  4. I broke my wrist once, fracture. Not broken/bent, it didn't need to be set. Told the doc no cast, just give me a splint. I was able to play with it, with some discomfort. Good news was it wasn't stiff afterwards, cause it wasn't immobilized completely. I was rehabbing it the whole time.
