Thread Name: Relearning instruments after a stroke
Subject: RE: Relearning instruments after a stroke
Had a stroke in November 2000, couldn't walk, talk. Couldn't even strum a guitar at first. Tried to play a little every day, and after a year my playing was only horrible but I had progressed. It's been about 6-1/2 years and I find I can hold my own. Subtle nuances aren't there yet, but friends say they don't notice. The journey to virtuoso begins with the first note, and then one at a time. Love yourself, you'll get there before you know it!
