I was playing bass when all of a sudden I felt a sharp pain in the tip of my left index finger. I think I got some sort of splinter from the strings because when I look real closely at my finger I can see a little black speck where the pain is concentrated. It doesn't hurt as long as i don't touch anything, but as soon as i touch something the pain is real sharp and concentrated at my finger tip. This really bites because one it hurts and two i can't play bass. anyone have any ideas of how to get this thing out? its too small to get with tweezers. And anyone have any idea how the heck it got into my finger in the first place?
