Subject: RE: Tech: Musical instrument not needing dexterity
There are some alternatives that I've used when I've had problems with my left hand that required surgery, trigger finger release and an arthroplasty on the thumb joint.
If you can swing your right arm in time, maybe more from the elbow than you're used to, you might have luck with your guitar in open tunings (I used mostly D when I was having problems but also G and A) and played chords with one finger and even learned some slide. I imagine you could do the same with a uke which might be easier to play.
