Scotty, my wife took Hawaiian guitar lessons in school.  It has since fell apart but I usta mess with it a little.  I used to favor steel guitar music and more recently enjoy dobros.  Point is, those guitar-like instruments are somewhat friendly to arthritic hands since they use a slide of some configuration and finger picks.  Cats hate em though.

Oh, I'll have to stop into a music store and check, then. Thanks, Larry. I'm so used to seeing Peter (White) play acoustically even though he does use a pic occasionally, I just couldn't imagine my own VERY painful right thumb/wrist managing. Maybe it'll work, but I still have issues even picking up the lightest thing. Can't make that 'pincer-grip' without intense pain, off and on, so that's where my mind was going--could I even use a pic? My hematologist is sending me for an appointment with another doctor in his office (in a couple of weeks) to see if I'd be a candidate for CBD tincture. I've been putting it off for ages, not being a fan of the idea, but - at this point I'm willing to try it if it'll give some relief.

Best, scotty

I also played violin, oboe, trombone. In the world of oboe I made my reeds.
