Don Meixner Playing inspite of injury/disability (36) RE: Playing inspite of injury/disability 04 Feb 99

Hello All,

Thank you for the many replies and kind comments. I am seeing a trend that breaks down uinto the obvious. Those who learned an istrument in spite of disabilities such as birth defects or trauma at an age before they began an instrument. Ie: Sandy's son the Concertina player. And those who came up with ways to keep playing following a disability. ie: Kris and the wedding ring incident.

If I could enlrge this thread little. What physical therapy did you find significant, I used autoharps to strengthen my heavily lacerated left and and fingers. Are there appliances that you now use that you didn't before? I now need fingerpicks and very heavy gauge plat picks when I rarely used them before.

Thanks gang, it is truly appreciated.
