In fact, I broke my hand and several fingers a number of years ago. I had more difficulty telling where the keys were but I found that, at least for tuning (pain aside), that motor control of the arm, wrist, shoulder, and hand were far more important than what I could feel with that hand. I found that the kinesthetics were far more important. I also had the same result with some temporary nerve damage to the hand and fingers. I t was nearly impossible for me to do may repairs and I had difficulty in quickly locating specific strings and their associated tuning pins as well as in easily locating specific keys but my tuning ability in itself seemed pretty much unimpaired so long as I could grip the tuning hammer.
