just got home from hospital stay. i now only have my index finger on my right hand.----no not a shop accident, but complications from my diabetes. after i heal, i'll figure out how to continue building cbg's. i'm right handed, so i'll have to learn how to do everything left handed. the main thing will be to not give up. i now can give petey 2 finger a run for his money---call me marky single digit
take care all
I just wanted to wish you a Happy Christmas - I hope you are doing okay and that the New Year brings you some better times.
This guy doesn't do to bad considering he has a spinal cord injury...He had to learn to replay entirely! wish I had that one fingers worth of Talent!
Sorry to hear about your hand, i lost my index, ring finger and 30% use of my middle finger on my right hand [ i`m right handed ] in a job injury back in 2005. When i got home from the hospital i thought no way will i be able to create like i use too. Plus the band i was in we just came out with our first cd. Well 6 years later i`ve overcome that injury and learned to keep creating and playing, maybe not as well as before but still doing it. Like i`ve always said....if there`s a will there`s a way !! One idea that i have for you...make up a glove for your injured hand with velcro on it, then attach velco to your tools that you use. Might be one way to help. They do simalar gloves like that out in the V. A hospital for guys with hand injury`s.
You can do it gud bud, the 'Nation' is with you. G.
