    Any finger... but you will still be able to play bass...

    If you had the opportunity, would you want to have the bone of your finger be turned into a nut for your bass?

    I think it would be sorta cool.... I'd do it and stick it on my Jazz.

    What goes through my mind?

    Imagine George Carlin, just as a conservative.

    That is my brain.

    Let's say you were to lose an a$$ cheek, would you use the fat to give your Single Cut, Bubinga bass an oil finish?

    Oh my God. You've actually done it, Mike, you've reached new lows!! :D I congratulate you!!

    As for the question, no I don't think I'd do that. To be honest, I don't really want to lose a finger. I'm kinda using them all.

  14. my cousin and i did not listen to my uncle and he had some old cannon balls and we were throwing them in the dirt making dents. stupid i know. anyway, i went to pick up mine and he threw his down, it hit a rock, which made it change direction, then hit my pinky. thank god i was picking mine up at the time or would have gotten my whole hand. they tried to save my finger, however, it died. so hence, the removal. i have a knuckle on it still and so my best friend at 12 named it twiggy.

    moral of the story-----listen to your elders, sometimes they know what they are talking about.:D

    lol bruce:D

    I would LOVE having my nut made out of my finger bone, if I had already lost it. Call me crazy.

    I wouldn't want to use my middle finger. Then I wouldn't be able to "communicate" with other drivers:p

  19. Last joint of my right pinky is fused and doesn't work due to an argument I had with a fork lift many years ago. Doesn't affect my playing at all however.

    Wanna form a band? We can call ourselves "Badfinger".
     
  20. And what god-forsaken purpose does this thread serve?
