Herga Kitty, why don't you take up the fiddle? First position on a fiddle (and you can almost anything folkie in first position) has a much smaller area to stretch around than a guitar or piano. And it's much cooler than some silly percussion instrument! And there are only four strings to locate, and since they're in an awkward position to look at anyway you soon learn to find them by feel rather than sight.
