I cracked my left hand at work yesterday - literally. I've been calling it my "Tom Cruise Tropic Thunder" hand since. Painkillers may be involved.

Immediately after I take a shower I can't use my touch screen device well because my fingers don't slide against the surface. Probably something to do with natural oils in your skin.

Oh the trials and tribulations of poor Odin.... LOL.

How the hell do you do all that?   It's taken me like two weeks just to make a biker vest from Sons of Anarchy.

Upon further review my cracked hand is in fact shattered in 3 spots. Bring on the opiates.

That sucks man. I broke my hand many years and had a metal plate inserted. I called it my robocop hand (hey, it was the early '90s).

Robocop is a classic. Which hand did you break?

It would really suck if that was my source of income.  Drop D isn't low enough - I had to drop down to C to be able to fret anything. I used to just suck, now I suck and sound like Wes Borland. HELP!!

I'm pretty sure it was The Melvins who made drop D a common tuning - a lot of people credit Soundgarden for that but Thayil always points out he took it from Buzz Osborne <Melvins>....I've never tried playing in open A. Must sound like sludge.

For the modern context they were definitely influential though the tuning has been around since guitars were first made.

Yeah, the drop A can be pretty wacky, need some telephone poles to do it justice.

Hey, at least you didn't 'Iommi' yourself... :)
