  • 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.

                            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.
