Makes me relax a little. I got my left index finger in the woodsplitter two years ago. As I was going in to get my wife to take me over to the ER, I was thinking "this is not life threatening, and if I have to, I will switch hands for the guitar and play lefty". But with a lot of encouragement from my myself I actually improved my guitar playing. And not to mention my initial successes with the violin. I would not recommend anyone use this method to improve your motivation to practice.
If someone tells you "you can't", even with physical disabilities... don't beleive them. If you tell this to yourself, don't beleive yourself either.
Mt. Fiddler Mark (a.k.a., this post only... "Half Finger Mark".)
Here is a picture of an almost healed finger in what's called a "growth stimulator (for broken bones.). I did take some other pictures along the way, but aren't suitable for public distribution. If you're interested seeing them, though, I will PM you. No one would think or believe that I'd be playing violin based on those pictures. I am very grateful.
This is amazing!
We had a one-handed girl on the forum a while back, asking if we thought she'd be able to play. Where did she go, I wonder? I hope she's out there pursuing her dream, and that she's seen this video!
