Interesting thread. I took mine off for a few years when my husband and I went sailing into the sunset. Kept it off for a few years after returning home but put it back on last year when I took up the guitar! (Have you noticed how few married women don’t wear rings?)
If I had seen this thread first I might have reconsidered- it cost me lots of $$ to resize it
However I have enough difficulties playing guitar I would never notice if the ring itself was causing a problem.
