So here we are in October 2019! Summer was hot this year, here in Spain where I live (I’m originally from Manchester, Oasis land!). I had my first stroke 5 years ago, affecting my right side, strumming arm, and it took me all those 5 years to be able to strum more or less properly again, then BOOM, another stroke in September 2019, a month ago, again affecting the right side! I’m getting the feeling someone doesn’t want me playing guitar!

After the first stroke I was pretty bummed, almost gave up music altogether (I used to play in bars, singer/songwriter type stuff, covers etc, the odd gig here and there) but then I had the idea that I could at least try to help others, least I could do right? So I made this site, looked for a worthy cause and found the World Stroke Organization. https://www.world-stroke.org/

So here we are now, in October, it’s getting colder now, -3 yesterday! I’m typing this with gloves on I kid you not! Gonna try to play guitar a bit today, I already know how challenging it will be, my right arm doesn’t work like it did before the stroke, but it will! it takes time. I don’t know when I’ll be able to make a new video but I’ll do it as soon as I can.

In the meantime you can check out the videos on the front page and even subscribe to my YouTube channel! (That really helps too!!)

Have a great day wherever you are in the world!!
