The Answer Lies Somewhere

At first, I talked about physical therapy for my hands on another site. I decided to delete any references to the physical therapy on said site.

Instead, I’ll be talking about it here.

Some years ago, I sustained a few injuries on my hands and fingers from multiple activities, including sports among others.

Sometimes around 2014, I couldn’t make fists on both hands. Apparently those injuries finally caught on to me.

With proper medications and physical therapy, I finally able to mitigate the issues. Yet, I do feel that I had lost dexterity in both hands.

Sometimes in 2022 I started another physical therapy to increase dexterity. It was a tedious process and still is. It dawned on me that practicing guitar helped increasing strength and dexterity on my fingers. So I did some exercise on guitar on daily basis, whenever I could. I am far from being proficient again in playing guitar, and yet I have made a lot of progress.

To make this process of therapy interesting, I started rearranging songs that I like for a single guitar performance. Obviously I’m starting with a lot of slow-tempo songs. Some of them have interesting chord changes that require me to improve the way my hands and fingers move.

These days, I am working on one song that most of my friends never heard of; not a popular song.

Well, I for one enjoy this process of therapy.

Day39, 2023: Tuning Guitar with Floyd Rose Bridge

Apparently today is a good day for me to tune my guitar. Since it is equipped with Floyd Rose bridge, it took a little bit finessing to get proper tuning. Oh, it is an EVH Wolfgang Special with D-tuna.

The hardest part to tune this guitar is making sure the D-tuna works properly, dropping from E to D on the bottom E-string.

On an unrelated news, I just signed up for account.

Day 7, 2023

Surviving the first week of 2023 from the rain, implosion at US House of Representatives, attacks on Ukraine, persecution of protesters in Iran, etc.

…and it is Saturday night. I had a late night session on Friday and continued on till morning. I spent most of the day in bed, actually sleeping.

I thought I could relax a bit today. Tomorrow I will be helping out a few people with their technology issues.

51 more weeks to go.
