Found this trivia for Once upon a time in Mexico on imdb :

The leather wrist-support strap that Antonio Banderas wears on his hand is the same that Clint Eastwood wears in Per qualche dollaro in più (1965). Also, both characters hurt their hand in the their respective previous movies.

But they got it wrong as The man with no name was hurt on his left hand in FOD while he's wearing the wrist support on his right hand in FFDM.

For years I thought that Manco wears the Leather Hand Brace in For A Few Dollars More as a direct result of Chico’s brutal foot stomp delivered to him in A Fistful Of Dollars.  As you had mentioned above, it was Joe’s left hand that gets damaged and Manco does indeed were the hand brace on the right hand.  I have found out that some gunslingers of that era, and today’s cowboy action shooters, wear those types of devices as an accessory.  It gives the shooter the ability to “slap” the hammer down into the cocked position before drawing the gun thus reducing the time and agility it takes to cock it with the thumb as you bring the gun up and out of the holster.  To try this maneuver with out protection would more than likely slice your hand open.  Also, they say it helps to steady your aim as well.

Here is a picture of one I’ve found.  Although not exactly like Manco’s it’s serves the same purpose…

bo diddley plays his guitar in open E meaning he just holds his thumb across the bridge between the frets of his guitar to strum a chord.
there's a one stringed guitar called the diddley bow.  mr. diddley uses the same method to play his six string electric homemade guitar without squating, or wrist support.  so didlally bow becomes bo didlley's name.
 
or, scroll halfway down on this link to find another version, which still isn't c/j's original,
"doodley squat"
