The joyful day!

I have a blister on my thumb

from 5 minutes of guitar playing.

But ... I found out that I could do some things playing fingerstyle that I didn't know I could do ...

I'll try it with fingerpicks when I get home (If I can find my picks, I don't play with fingerpicks very often)

I think that it would work even better with the more percussive sound of fingerpicks.

I don't know how long it will take this blister to go away ... I have a history of tearing up my right hand playing fingerstyle ... which is why I rarely do it. But calluses on my right hand created by guitar playing tend to tear off violently.
