Playing Guitar With Arthritis
May 31 2015
ChordBuddy has found a home not only with younger people learning to play the guitar for the first time, but also with seniors who haven’t been able to play the guitar for years because they suffer from Rheumatoid Arthritis. The late mother of Travis Perry, the inventor of the ChordBuddy, was not able to play guitar for almost the entire last 10 years of her life. But thanks to her son’s invention, she was playing guitar with arthritis without any pain at all. That was the background of a story the Wall Street Journal did a few years ago.
The ChordBuddy eliminates the pain of playing for most Arthritis patients because they no longer have to perform the complex finger positions and movements typically required to make a guitar chord. It essentially makes the task as easy as pushing a button, which most Arthritis patients are able to do.
If you or a loved-one have given up playing the guitar because of Arthritis, don’t give up hope. The ChordBuddy is here to help.
