Introduction

Hey, my name is Tom.
I'm going to learn myself how to play the guitar left-handed. I already know how to play the guitar. Two years ago I had kind of a setback, I majorly injured my left wrist. When it became clear to me that I couldn't play the guitar anymore, I was searching for other instruments to play. I picked up the chromatic harmonica. The harmonica alone didn't give me enough motivation to continue practicing. And at times it was to hard to not touch the guitar, so I would grab it and play, and hurt myself (it still happens now and than :b)

Since last month I started to learn myself how to play the guitar left handed. I also started a blog. You can take a look around if you want.
I'm posting progression, vids, sometimes lessons or just funny music compositions. Anything to keep me busy and keep my motivation high!

  30. People who aren't used tips in real life what is the reason behind their not doing the work that's not
    the matter of fact, I have to tell you that you will suffer from the overweight problem in future if you aren't now.
    The video games aren’t a miracle pill, but they really do help you have an interesting
    and fun workout, which for me is essential. Instead, start off by looking for one bad eating habit that you have every day - and break it.
