My First Post: I've been playing since the late 60's, off and on. After a 15 yr hiatus I started gigging again until I had an illness that took me away from everything. It's been since 2009 and now I am pretty much "repaired", as it were... I have developed arthritis in both hands and numbness, as well. Soooo....does anyone know of any finger exercises that may help me limber up my chops? I try playing but my "plucking" fingers keep getting caught up in the strings. My fretting fingers keep gnarling up too. Any suggestions that might help me get back on track? Thanks, folks!
