I've noticed that if a person wears a ring and drives on a regular basis, the ring digs ruts in the steering wheel, kind of offbeat, but does wearing a ring on your fretting hand damage the neck as well? Can you perform a slide with a ring?

I never wear my wedding ring for this reason. My wife hates me.

tell sauron that and he'll kick yur ass.. o_O

Serious though, I have a ring I couldn't live without. I've had it on my finger for maybe 4 years now and it has become a part of me heh. My finger feels empty when I remove it. I also have a necklace and it's the same with that.

As long as there's no contact between the finger and the neck there will be no damage.

Yes. I have a friend who does.

I can't play as fast and controlled with a ring on my left hand. Cool though.

How does she react if you open a beer with your wedding ring?
