Ron,
Yep i lost the whole finger and it pulled the tendon out of my arm as well...they said the tendon ripped out from down by my elbow.I know it sure felt like it and it was about 16" long laying there on the floor.
i still play the piano a bit but i was playing Clasical at the time of the accident and it's kind of hard to do that missing a didget.
I am all healed up now and don't really have any complaints about it ... I still get the ghost pain. do you?
Thanks for the encoragment tho. I'm sorry about your thumb that is way worse than losing a ring finger. I admire your spirit to NEVER GIVE UP!
thanks again
Dave

Ghost Pain? I have a nervy situation, kind of like the nerve in your elbow (funny bone). It is kinda sensitive in that way, but it isn't painful unless I whack it on something. It's just annoying, but I'm learning to get around it. It is amazing how many little things that are difficult to do now. Won't slow me down much though and I am pretty resorceful. Don't worry 'bout me. Losing any part of your body is a bummer, Dave...............Forward!!!!

I'm afraid I fall into that banjo player category as well. I used to make them and that somehow evolved into coin engraving. I am somewhat of a gentleman banjo player and only use it when I want to clear the room. I also play mandolin, guitar, and my latest obsession is the square-neck resonator slide guitar... AKA the dobro.

Yes, I am a musician. I sang for nearly all my life and at 49 y.o. started learning guitar. Now after 5 years, I can say that I can actually play. I like fingerpicking best, but I get "tangled" when I try to sing while playing. Stumming and singing is significanly easier for me. - I hope to get better over the years and decades to come; provided I'm stil around and breathing. :)
