Thread Name: The Hand Injury
Subject: RE: The Hand Injury
Don, thanks for that.

Spot - just hang in there - if you believe, you can achieve much. I once met a guy who had serious hand injury who was able to play guitar (open tuning) much like a steel style using 2 fingers.

And don't forget Django 'created his style' after serious hand injury left him with 2 working fingers. You may not be able to do exactly what you did before, but if you really want to you will be able to still 'make music'.

Btw, I have just finished saving up and bought replacement autoharp strings - might be able to do something useful with it now... I will need to start looking for useful autoharp hints - but since I am a 'recycled muso', I should be able to take most of my previous piano chord and Stradella experiences and fake it?... :-)

If any of you autoharp experts want to refresh any useful old threads, or write some new hints, you can help Spot and me.... :-)
