Im an older guy ( just turned 40 ) but love this gave since it came out..
Really enjoy playing it with my kids ( 12 & 13 ) ..

When I was 12 , I injured my left hand with some fireworks ( firecrackers ) .. I have been unable to play the guitar with all fingers because my last 2 fingers have no feeling in them. I however have adapted to using only my 2 fingers .. for example ... when there is a three note call out , I use 1 finger to hold down 2 buttons..


My buddy who is a musician says its way easier to play with 2 than 4 fingers ... I say ya... ok ..

I am 3/4 the way through on expert with solo tour too.. so I am not too bad I guess

Awaiting your replys..

Thanks in advance

    Have you considered learning to play left handed? Just a thought.

    I was expecting someone to say that!

    And playing on expert with 2 fingers... impressive.

    Wow, impressive~! That's really impressive~!

    When I was a little kid, I cut my left hand pretty badly, and had some nerve damage. Because of that, some fingers have awkward movement and I can't stretch them as far as my right hand. After years of practice though (Including real guitar), I'm now able to comfortably play with my left hand, all 4 fingers.

    Also, actually last year, I broke my right hand and becuase of it, I have difficulty drawing now, which sucks, becuase I'm an artist. However, I luckily only need my right hand to strum.

    I'm just accident prone, I guess!

    What's hard to understand about that song? The lyrics explain it all.

    29 fingers, and only 6 are thumbs.

    3 band members, normally 10 fingers each, one is missing a finger (but that finger is not a thumb).

    Wrote a song about it, like to hear it? Here it goes! :D

    I can relate ...

    if any of you youngsters read this ... take it from me " DO NOT PLAY WITH FIREWORKS AT SUCH A YOUNG AGE"

    I was in hospital for a whole summer , had numerous surgeries to re-attach the nerves .. plus it made the palm of my hand look like frankensteins ..
