    I have had a slight misshap.

    Not been able to play my guitars for three months because of a finger injury on my left hand and now this.

    Life sucks at times.

    Left hand is now OK so anyone know any left hand keyboard riffs I could try?

    ;)

    Gardening, I was using a power drill to create a series of 15mm diameter drainage holes in some plant troughs and something in my wrist went twang as I picked up the drill to drill the holes in the second trough.

    Oh bugger!
    So sorry to hear that.
    I can't help you with left hand riffs. I just play chords. I reckon paul will have some good ideas.
    Hope it heals quickly.

    Cheers Ray.

    I usually just play chords with the left or if the chord sequence is repetive I will record the sequence, then play it back then arpeggiating with the left.

    Sorry to hear about your injury Col. I wish you a speedy recovery.

    Have you ever tried stride piano? Lots of fun, and not too tricky if you already know chords - now might be the opportunity to learn it.

    Oh no! Sorry to hear that @Biggles :( Hope you have a swift recovery. Have you seen anyone about it? If you've sprained a ligament then some physio might help, and don't forget RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation).

    Thanks Becky.

    Alas my Wife has also been ill for the last month hence I am not getting much chance to rest it.

    Trying to do everything left handed but a kitchen knife in my left hand cutting up the onion for our Risotto tonight has been a potential visit to A&E

    Oh no! Hope she's doing ok. If you're struggling to cut onions, don't forget you can always grate them. Better than a trip to A&E!
