That 12 of yours is a special box Kendall. I had a go on it long ways back, and loved it. That's probably why I got Nick to make me a 12 string too. I still prefer your one, but don't tell Nick ;)

And yet, when on those dusty strings
My gaze does once more fall
I harken back to days when they and voice did fill the hall
Twixt grief of loss and joy recalled, there gently rests a choice
Oh, let joy win, for all that's been
Oh, yes, I will rejoice!

(And keep on playing on the less achy days, Cap'n! Remember- ebbs and flows.)

And don't worry, I don't intend to write last verses for all of these!

Dave Mallett was here the other day. What he does with a guitar cant be done. I'm so lucky to have such a friend. I haven't even tried to play my Nick Apollonio 12 string, but he can make it talk.
When he laid it down, I was struck by the thought that came to me. I nearly wept. "The harp that once through Tara's halls its soul of music spread, now hangs as mute on Tara's wall as if that soul had fled, so speaks the pride of former days when glory's thrill is o'er for hearts that once beat high with praise now feels that pulse no more. Now I will weep.
Goodnight all you wonderful friends. you have no clue how important you are to me.

Never heard of vinegar for joint pain. It's ironic that I use it for leg cramps and it does help. Can't wait to try it.!

The banjo is being repaired by a top luthier, and although the original value was $2500.00 it has has slipped, it is still worth around $1700.00, (according to the owner of Buckdancers Choice. Shipping is a consideration.That depends on where the buyer is.

I've been following this thread with interest, as a player of various instruments, and someone who has mild arthritis in the thumbs, which has never got beyond a certain stage - no worse than it was 10 or 15 years ago - but you never know. A couple of people have mentioned cider vinegar. I haven't tried it, but know a clog dancer (English clog, not Appalachian clogging) who had trouble with an arthritic big toe a while back. Tried cider vinegar and swore by it. Hasn't mentioned the toe for a couple of years. Soething that hasn't been mentioned is acupuncture. It is uswed to treat arthritis. It apparently doesn't work for everybody, but does for some. It's used on arthritic dogs, so obviously isn't a placebo - try explaining it to Pooch: "now rhis nice man is going to stick some needles in you, and you'll feel better...". It's non-invasive - no drugs or surgery, so if it does no good, it'll do no harm.
As regards alternative instruments, somebody mentioned hammered dulcimer. I met a lady who had the type of arthritis that deforms the fingers. Hers were all bent over sideways, and pretty well useless, but she could grip things between first fingers and thumbs. She had a small dulcimer, which she could carry under her arm, and was able to play this fine. Just a thought if thingss eventually do get worse. Hope not! Enquire about the acupuncture. As I said, it can't do any harm.

I went through a very rough time back there, and I almost gave in and dumped all my instruments out of pique. I had no idea that so many catters were on my side, or were even very aware of who I am. I tell you true, your collective support has been priceless.I thank you all.

I probably will sell the 1927 Vega tubafone. It is a great bluegrass banjo, LOUD. I still have an older Vega open back that is more civilized and better suited to folk music.I will never sell this one. It was given to me by a dear friend who died some years ago. When I go, it goes back to his son where it belongs.

Even if/when there is no hope whatsoever of being able to play, a case can still be made for hanging on to an intrument as an old friend. Clive Woolf has been unable to play his since he was "cut down in his prime" (not actually by a stroke as such, but the same result, hemiplegia), but he still has his guitar.

Hahaha! Bagpipes!

Kendall, my father was a folk musician for decades, and I found a lot of folk instruments in his collection that I'm pretty sure he didn't know how to play himself. I think he was simply playing the "good host" and keeping instruments available for performers who might drop in to a Song Circle or hoot without every instrument in their repertoire.

Think about that moment when a guest picks up an instrument and makes beautiful music - it's a wonderful moment for both of you. Good instruments will never be neglected if you have friends who come by who can play them.

thanks for the input, Leeneia. I have a great doctor who sent me to a specialist, and it IS arthritis. Donuel, I GAVE MY 100 YEAR OLD VIOLIN TO A FRIEND BECAUSE IT WAS JUST TOO PAINFUL TO PLAY. That left hand position was impossible.
Ok, had to give up singing, no choice, hearing in my left ear,joint pain makes playing painful. looks like I need to adjust. Maybe I'll take up the bagpipes.

I just got an offer from someone who works with senior citizens for me to come and Talk to them. To discuss humor and that sort of thing. Never thought of myself as a teacher, but, who knows?

I'm reminded of a quote by Shakespeare; (many things do...)
The King who was overthrown and exiled to some God forsaken place. He is examining his situation, and finding the good in it.

"Sweet are the uses of adversity; which, like the Toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel in its head. This is our life, exempt from public haunt, we find tongues in trees, books in running brooks, sermons in stone, and good in everything. I would not change it."

I've been thinking,Kendall.

1. I've been thinking of the book I read (by an M.D.) on repetition stress injuries. The doc specifically mentioned playing with a triangular pick as a cause of injury.

What if your problem is merely soreness or strain caused by using a triangular pick? Rest or treatment might improve it.

You haven't mentioned seeing a specialist. Do you know your problem is arthritis? That it can't be helped?

2. I've been thinking about how I got a cough and cold last May, and it just wouldn't go away. After two months of illness, a big trip motivated me to go to the clinic again, and the clinic nurse packed me off to an M.D.'s office. The M.D. announced, "You know the weather's been rainy for a long time. This is allergies." He prescribed one steroid shot and I was cured.

My point is that we may think we know what's wrong with us, based on "common knowledge," but we can be wrong.

3. I'm glad you are not rushing into things - not ready to stop playing and getting rid of fine instruments right away.

My attitude has improved so much! the mudcat gang has been unbelievable. I went from selling all my instruments to buying another one today. A nylon string SAG model 1066A. Plays like butter, beautiful, light, and the balance is to die for. That E minor is beautiful when I hit that 6th string open.

Kendall, I guess you may have noticed that your supporters on here, are really behind you continuing to play.

As far as tendinitis, as someone mentioned earlier, my doctor turned me onto a little trick that works great...let's say it's your left hand that goes numb, take your right hand, and just put pressure above your elbow, of the left hand...as if you're crossing your arms, press into the nerve of the numb arm. The numbness will magically dissipate. You may have to feel around to find the nerve, but once you do, you'll know it. You can also, easily do it on stage, and nobody will know.....just behind the elbow, on the back side.
I hope others reading this, may benefit from this handy little trick.

Regards...and keep playing...we need more musicians, and less politicians!!

The last person that I heard play my Seagull cutaway was beer when he dropped in on a trip east five years or so ago. Cheap guitar but it hadn't been moved from in front of the fireplace for three years due to arthritis and it was still in perfect tune. He made it sound sweet but I knew that night... I sold it not long after. I sold the mandolin. Arthritis sucks. I went down the vocal cord/smoking route too a while before that... I can still talk without too many problems but singing any more that the last line of a verse among others has been a chore. Amos visited on his way east two years ago and I managed a few beats on the Rhan and a few last lines on some song verses. Alas, I fear that will be the last of it. As far as my three Bodhrans, I will never sell them... NObody will buy them!

Kendall... I had to curtail playing before arthritis struck due to a ganglion. Just days ago, the damn thing burst! I think it was caused by jarring my wrist while scraping ice off my driveway. I haven't tried to play Rhan again yet but??? Ya never know, eh? Hang on to that guitar a while yet.

Try the ukulele.

There's quite a few on the ukulele forum I belong to who have come from guitar, several having had to give up for reasons similar to yours have tried ukulele and found they could manage it because it's so much smaller and lighter. I have the beginnings of arthritis in my wrists but I am able to cope with the ukulele fine.
