And Andy Partridge from XTC
The Guitar Glove by Shredies was designed to keep the guitar’s neck feeling dry, smooth, consistent and fast.
Upon my descent I slipped and fell. In grabbing the hand rail, I sliced open my entire left palm on a sharp weld. The deep jagged wound fortunately didn’t compromise any nerves or tendons.
I knew the 24 stitches I received wouldn’t interfere with my ability to practice medicine but how was I going to play our gig Friday night?
So I traced out my hand on an old T shirt, grabbed some scissors, and an old sewing machine and made one of the ugliest fingerless gloves you’ve ever seen. But it worked great. In fact, I realized that my hand movement was more smooth and efficient than playing with my bare hand before the injury. My hand actually felt liberated from the friction normally there between my palm and the guitar neck.
