Re: Do rings get in the way?

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate wearing my rings and never wear them for rehearsals or concerts and only recently started wearing a watch again because my schedule became so busy. However, I usually take my watch off when I play for extended periods of time. Rings are such an annoying nuisance whether they are turning so the diamond faces the string or just keep you from making a clean muffle. This is critical when you are recording, the last thing you need is an unexpected buzz.

It also feels heavy on my finger especially when I am doing a lot of arpeggios or big stretch chords. Even a skinny band makes a noise and I find it irritating to have to work around it. I find it interesting that some people don’t understand this.
