Yep. Your hands can really take a likkin' and keep on pickin. I once (a long time ago) tried to split my left hand first finger with a table saw but the dang thing still works. Friend of mine (tmodel) plumb whacked a finger off but the docs stuck it back on and it still works. You don't realize how great hands are until one of them gets bunged up. Keep on pickin', Jim you are one of my favorite players.

Cool, Jim. Soak em in a heavy epsom salt solution with extremely hot water every day for fifteen minutes before you pick?

Hey Jim, look after those hand buddy, they are important to us all on hangout. What you need is a young apprentice to tie all those cable ties and meter out all those wires for ya!!!!!

There is a song that Jhonny Cash does. I think it is called, These hands are the hands of a gentleman. This song reminds me of you Jim. Look it up on youtube if you aint heard it yet.

Take care of those hands Jim. Even as you decribe them they create some of the best songs on this site. One of the greats indeed.
