Volleyball. All four nails gone in one afternoon, back in my college days! Haven't played since.

I disagree -- my dog is my best audience! :)


I agree that if one only has one dog, especially a very small one that isn't too roudy or anything. Although, I visited some friends last summer and they had 5 dogs in their very small house trailer. They had 4 huge dobermans and 1 small shihtzu and all of them constantly wanted attention and always were in everyone's face all the time. You wouldn't be able to move and the dogs were right there always. So, I couldn't imagine being able to get the classical guitar out of the case and being able to get any serious classical guitar practice done! Plus, these dogs I think hated music, the family had a harmonica that they would play just a few notes and the dogs would just be howling until the family would stop playing. So, if something like this would happen when I would be trying to practice guitar, I would either have to sell the dogs or sell the guitar. :) :bye:

^^Yes, that would certainly make it difficult to play (not to mention being hazardous to the instrument!). One must choose one's pets wisely (or train them well)... :)

But to answer the original question, I add a vote for cheese graters and zippers (best to get in the habit of using the fretting hand for such things!).

I second the risk of pistachios - there's always a tough shell that catches you out....

Surprised carpal tunnel has not come up - especially now we're in the digital age - keyboard and mouse usage etc. Do touch pad users get any ergonomic/physical issues I wonder?
Plus can any serious CG player partake in any active sport seriously? Tennis elbow, rugby - dislocated shoulder, football/soccer goalie - bent fingers, boxing - don't even bother...etc.

And I theorise that all professional and serious student CG players are useless at DIY....

+1 for zippers.

And a new one for the list- swinging my arms around without my glasses on... Ah the golden years..
