Peter Ustinov in ... ?
O'Toole. The Lion In Winter. Love that film.
Lol! That was my first thought but he looks heavy in that pic. Always go with your instinct!
Lion in Winter is a fave of mine, as is Becket.
Yes, but not because I was good. It was when I first started playing as a teenager and my guitar was a hand me down acoustic from my mom. I played until my fingers were bleeding one Saturday. Five hours straight on really old, rusty strings. When I got my first strat I did the same thing again (although to be fair my calluses were pretty light) ... Looking back it was a real waste because no one should bleed for Offspring songs through a crate combo.
If I play a steel strung acoustic when I'm drunk or with a group of friends and were singing our heads off, then I quite often burst open the skin around my nail on my index finger of my right hand (my strumming hand).
I think it's a combination of playing too hard, no pick to hand as most of these sessions are impromptu things at somebody elses house/pub/garden etc and then the way I attack the strings with my fingers...oh, and the drink numbing my senses.
I've bloodied up a few folks guitars that way.
I guess the original poster was talking about fret hand though?
I never had a wound on my fingers but I get blisters on my fingers.
Especially my left ring finger.
