  • Playing Guitar with a Ring

    So, I just got married, and I've noticed that I either have to get used to playing with my wedding band on, or I have to switch it to my right hand (or just take it off) while playing. But I've seen tons of pros play with their wedding rings on; for example, I'm pretty sure Petrucci shreds just fine with his on. Anyway, how long did it take you to get used to playing with a ring on your fretting hand?

    "honey... how come every time you do a gig at a bar full of hot sleazy drunk women you take your wedding ring off?"

    "because it gets in the way when i'm ripping a solo"

    "oh.. ok"

        you will have to get used to wearing it in all situations.
        sportsmen put bandaids over them, Keef has a handful of rings as do I.
        Frankly I never noticed it.

        Congratulations. Hope you have a happy life together.

          You get used it. Especially once you accept that gold is soft and gets banged up by damn near everything anyway.

            I never got used to it, but divorce helped remedy that problem.

            Not that I'm recommending that.

                Congrats, and yeah, you get used to the ring with a little time. My only complaint is that the damn thing gets heavier the closer I get to Mordor.

                    I'm just as crappy playing with a wedding ring as playing without one.

                        I hate wearing rings on a regular day let alone while I am playing. So I will often just stick it in my pocket for the time being. However the wife and I have a bit of a love for tattoos so naturally...

                          So, I just got married, and I've noticed that I either have to get used to fapping with my wedding band on, or I have to switch it to my right hand (or just take it off) while whackin' it.

                          fixed.

                          Sorry, had to be doneoke:

                            My ring spends more time on my dresser than on my finger. BUt even when it is on it doesn't seem to hinder my playing any.
