Escapee Playing Guitar with Arthritis (110* d) RE: Playing Guitar with Arthritis 28 Mar 08

My answer doesn't actually address your question head on, Alley, but you might consider a banjo. At least the way I play, it requires less force from the left hand and the neck is much smaller. With the standard G tuning, there are simple one-finger barre chords all over the neck. I have occasional flare ups, but I just take more pills for a while. Not a good long term strategy,as has been wisely pointed out. Good luck with it.
Fair winds,
