Subject: RE: Help: Disabled Musician
Hi Susan,

Well, thanks for the praise, so to speak, and yes, I know a bit about the musician coping with a disability. I generally ask about a specific thing. Instruments with a more rounded voice than a tenor guitar or banjo. In this case citerns and other guitar like instruments that may, by virtue of their design share some of the dynamics of a guitar. But they may also be easier to play by virtue of chord structure, tuning, size, or ergonomic design.

As always the Forum stalwarts come through with great ideas and options. No info is wasted. Even it its not specific to what I have asked, other may and probably do benefit there by. Thank you all so much.

Bert, the Quatro idea facinates because of the tuning. Notice that taken ingroups of threes and asigned the strings as chords rather than notes they would come out like this.


5 1 4 5 1 4 5 1 4

Thus creating some easy work in simple line fills for the keys of E A D.

Warn regards
