Just wanted to share as we're sharing about wedding bands.
I only take mine off when I play solo. It'll click against stuff and annoy me.
I do take my ring off when I shower. When I got it, it was too big. I was paranoid about losing it down the drain, and it became a habit. I think it's a good idea to take it off every once in a while, so that I don't get to the point where I can't get it off anymore and they have to cut it off. Happened to my father-in-law.
Professional string players wear their rings on their right hand (bow hand). Can't tell you how many times my wife had to explain that when we were engaged.
