So yesterday at work, I umm made a mistake. I now have stitches in my left middle finger. Needless to say I am still going to try and teach my friend who is still very new at playing. Its going to a little difficult trying to teach but not show. But more than likely I will find some songs that can be played without using that finger. Learning experience I suppose. Or I will drink beer and just let him jam out to what he knows so far to get the muscle memory going.
