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!

Well I have been playing my keyboards, guitars and Ukes (notice that is plural as now have another) more and more so this year.

The wrist is still not been right but as our Health Service is being systematically screwed up by our Government it takes longer and longer to get treatment from certain specialists and the wrist guy is one of them. By comparison I saw my Orthopaedic Surgeon 10 days afrer seeing my General Practitioner.

Now a month ago I got a letter giving me an Appointment on the 3rd April, with the Wrist Consultant, which normally would be OK but all being well on the 3rd April I will be an inpatient at another Hospital and recovering from a replacement hip opration that I am scheduled to have on the 1st April so that date is no good.

So today I took up a a cancelled appointment and I hobbled 10 minutes away to my local Hospital for an injection in my wrist.

To say it is sore is an understatement and typing this on my iPad left handed is taking an age.

So now its a case of looking at videos and annoying the heck out of social media contacts and being a pain to my ever suffering Wife for a week or so until the wrist heals.

I can tell you youngsters that growing old disgracefully takes some determination, its not easy being a whinging old Brit.

It’s terrible that it takes so long to get an appointment with a specialist. :(

It's standard practice in single payer healthcare systems that life threatening conditions get triaged to the head of the line while painful, but non lethal conditions get pushed back in the queue. :cool:

Compare this to the American system where a man seeking butt implants can get them in one day as long as he has the cash or good insurance, but someone bleeding out of a bullet wound is likely to die in the ambulance because he has no insurance or the hospital is not part of his HMO. :mad:

All things considered I'm happier with socialized medicine. Warts and all ;)

Gary ;)
