"...played until my fingers bled..."
...it was the summer of '69, or '04 rather. The point is, that after not playing guitar intensively for about a year, using it to teach and sing with in class for about 3 hours a day is beginning to take a toll on my fingers. By the end of my last class today I thought I might pass out from the pain in my left hand.
Uh oh, my melodramatic bitching alarm just went off. I'll stop now.
