    I recently had a blister on my right hand (playing hand), middle finger. Its gone now and i've got the usual rough, uneven skin. Can this affect the tone of notes plucked with this finger? It seems to be making the notes sound thinner and more metallic? Any thoughts on this.....I'm worried I'm developing a bad habit
     
  2. i just posted basically the same question in the Technical Blister Question thread
    it appears i have the same problem you do

    Can anyone confirm this for us? Although the answer seems to point to the skin rather than a technique issue.

    Sounds like a callus - that's a good thing.
     

  5. Not a good thing to me, it brightens the tone and thats not what i am looking for :(
