Topic: Jim Deeming Live Stream
Hello My Friends
Just watching the live stream and one of the question I asked was what he might recommend for a person whose chord hand is arthritic, and someone suggested playing slide (Chris, I think it was and if he posts here, thanks again)
So he suggested a slide technique site, and I lost the name, so can someone help me out?
I have never tried a slide and I have my ring finger and pinkie which are not arthritic, so how would one address this?
I spoke to a guy at the guitar shop and he said "chord normally, you'll find the more you practice, the easier it will get even though you have the arthritis." Very painful, that.
Strangely enough, my picking finger (so far) has only the middle finger involved (can't bend it so it looks like I'm flipping folks off), so I think I may could still learn to finger pick with the slide, maybe a thumb and then one of those backward plucking picks. Would this be feasible?
In closing, I really appreciate you guys being so good to me!
