    Default Zman just dropped in again

    Well I haven't been here for 4 years I guess. Had a bout with the big C and survived. The Chemo took away the feeling in my hands and I have not been playing much lately. Sold a bunch of my guitars and I am down to 11. I have a guy coming tomorrow to pick up my 1996 Gibson LP Standard in Vintage burst. That will put me at 10. Do more Golf and Fishing now than anything. Been 4 years since the C and doing well. Even back to hockey.
    Just thought I would drop by and say hello.

    Glad to see you back Brian ! Did you completely loose the sensitivity on your fingers ? Could you for example learn to play slide ? I'm just asking because I suffer from arthitis and had to reduce gauge of my strings but I'm wondering if theis can get worse with time..

    Jipes---just interjecting here but yes, many players with arthritis and other related illnesses/disorders successfully learn how to play slide and or lap steel guitar.

    Some, Billy Hew Lin comes to mind, have attached a prosthesis to the stump of his left arm and played lap steel with that. Look for his vids on YouTube.
