My index finger on my picking hand does the same thing! I've been picking with my T-M-R fingers more and more. I've always used 4 fingers, but lately the index finger is too unreliable, so it just watches.

OM45GE - Posted - 11/21/2017:  02:58:30


Yikes. That would scare me.

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/21/2017:  07:02:48


There are classical guitarists - David Leisner is one- that had to quit playing for years and slowly retrain their brain and fingers. Nick Hornbuckle of John Reischman and the Jaybirds got it and learned to play 2finger banjo...,he is remarkable ,,the sounds he can get.

OM45GE - Posted - 11/21/2017:  12:26:24


Les Paul's hands were almost completely crippled with arthritis and he still played amazingly well.

DeanT - Posted - 11/21/2017:  14:23:13


Years of being an aircraft mechanic, took it's toll on my hands... I just do the best I can

OM45GE - Posted - 11/22/2017:  10:19:48


Truck driving was tough on my hands and I've had some overuse injuries from music over the years, but all my fingers are still working pretty well (knock on wood!).

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/22/2017:  14:56:36


Here’s Nick (Two Fingers) Hornbuckle doing his magic....(btw, Salt Spring is an island off the British Columbia coast)

He's better with 2 fingers, than I am with 4!

OM45GE - Posted - 11/23/2017:  03:49:28


There are some amazing musicians with physical limitations.

dmiller - Posted - 11/23/2017:  21:54:47


Due to many years of "grunt work"/ driving delivery trucks/, and lots of lifting heavy things from "here to there" - - I've got arthritic fingers also, and they sure don't move like they used to to in my youth when it comes to picking.  I have nothing but admiration for folks with disabilities who can play so well, despite their handicap.  Barry Abernathy (especially) comes to mind.  

OM45GE - Posted - 11/24/2017:  05:59:12


I’ll try to watch that video whenever I’m tempted to complain that my hands are sore.

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/24/2017:  06:06:06


Dave Hum is another guy who played great with hand injuries

OM45GE - Posted - 11/24/2017:  06:07:28


Yup.

DeanT - Posted - 11/24/2017:  10:00:28


that's determination... imagine the thousands of hours of practice

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/24/2017:  10:18:36


The other option is giving up....a demoralizing decision, for sure. Might as well try fight it.

DeanT - Posted - 11/24/2017:  12:49:23


It's hard enough with all digits, and functioning properly. I can't even imagine overcoming those obstacles...

OM45GE - Posted - 11/24/2017:  19:21:08


Like Chuck said, better than just giving up.

DeanT - Posted - 11/25/2017:  14:56:39


sometimes the challenge is what keeps us going.

OM45GE - Posted - 11/25/2017:  16:57:49


I’m ok without too many challenges.

DeanT - Posted - 11/25/2017:  17:04:40


I like athletic challenges, I've had enough musical challenges

dmiller - Posted - 11/25/2017:  18:57:50


I never was very athletic.  Bicycling and X-C skiing were pretty much my only athletic activities, and that was just for leisure and fun.

OM45GE - Posted - 11/26/2017:  03:37:14


I guess I do like challenges, learning new music, skiing Black Diamond trails, hiking further, that sort of thing.

DeanT - Posted - 11/26/2017:  06:22:37


I think swimming is my favorite

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/26/2017:  15:25:24


I might try some pickup baseball for old fogies when/if I retire, or get tired, whichever comes first.

DeanT - Posted - 11/27/2017:  01:07:07


pickle ball

OM45GE - Posted - 11/27/2017:  03:42:23


I’m probably not going to be any better at baseball now than I was as a kid.

DeanT - Posted - 11/27/2017:  10:11:56


I played a lot of softball, does that count? I got hurt a lot too, that's what I quit

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/27/2017:  16:29:52


dill nut

OM45GE - Posted - 11/27/2017:  18:25:53


?????

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/28/2017:  08:45:36


Sorry, page turn error....that was my response to “pickle ball”

DeanT - Posted - 11/28/2017:  11:20:15


I googled Dill Nut, and they have some health benefits!

OM45GE - Posted - 11/28/2017:  15:14:58


I wonder if you could grind them into flour and make dill dough.

DeanT - Posted - 11/28/2017:  17:59:07


It might be too stiff

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/28/2017:  19:08:37


10,000 comedians out of work ......

OM45GE - Posted - 11/29/2017:  02:51:31


Are you saying we’re hard up for humor?

DeanT - Posted - 11/29/2017:  10:26:53


That might be a little premature

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/29/2017:  11:59:52


This thread could build up to a climax

DeanT - Posted - 11/29/2017:  12:57:37


I hope it's not infectious

OM45GE - Posted - 11/30/2017:  03:25:32


Venereal disease, the gift that keeps on giving.

DeanT - Posted - 11/30/2017:  14:05:20


Nothing a shot can't cure...

chuckv97 - Posted - 11/30/2017:  14:52:21


Never had it, but there’s always hope

OM45GE - Posted - 11/30/2017:  18:19:39


Maybe you're not trying hard enough.

dat - Posted - 12/01/2017:  06:48:33


Looks like I may have stopped by at a bad time.
Just made it back from a little trip through the Ozarks, we left to go up there on Thanksgiving, now home and it's back to work Monday. Been doing great, nothing exciting just enjoying life

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/01/2017:  07:19:28


Good to hear, Daniel.

DeanT - Posted - 12/01/2017:  16:59:45


I like a dull boring life... plenty of excitement in the past

OM45GE - Posted - 12/01/2017:  18:49:37


Sounds great Daniel. Good to see you back on the BHO.

Today was my last day of work. I'm joining Dean in retirement.

DeanT - Posted - 12/01/2017:  18:53:49


CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Good luck trying to find time to do anything now!!! You'll be busier than ever!

OM45GE - Posted - 12/01/2017:  19:12:24


I am so happy to be out of there.

DeanT - Posted - 12/01/2017:  19:27:17


Sleep in from now on!

chuckv97 - Posted - 12/01/2017:  21:42:07


Yippee, Bill’s been set free! Looks good on you.
