Thread Name: Learning to play guitar
Subject: RE: Learning to play guitar
Can anyone say more about the playing with arthritis thing?? I had a buncha lessons way back before I developed arthritis (FOLK lessons; classical music lessons are something I had to overcome) and it never came up.

I agree with play, play play; I had a job once where I played a bit every day, and my callouses got so tough I could practice the real stuff for hours. Cain't do that wo callouses.

I am considering getting a double-O size guitar, as they put less strain on my fingers and shoulder. Any thoughts?
