My DH has a nasty accident while gardening some weeks ago, resulting in a very tender tip to his fore finger on his left hand. Although right handed this is a major problem as he plays bass guitar in a band. He is currently playing with three fingers, but sometimes forgets which causes no end of discomfort. So to protect the tip I made him this cover which allows him to touch the strings without catching anything else! He is gigging tonight so will test whether it works.
I would say break a leg,
but after the trauma of the finger he couldn't face any more time in A & E!
