Hi there , I have been a guitar player for Dan near half a century. In 2014 I suffered a massive stroke that paralyzed the left half of my body and took from me the use of my arm and hand, making the guitar a dream only
While in hospital a local musician heard my story and invited me to take part in a group learning the celtic harp. I do so with the right hand only and have had to learn to compensate rather frantically. I am recently practicing with an alto Chapman stick and my right hand is beginning to share my creative voice once more.
