Learning an instrument with arthritis .
I have always wanted to play an instrument and today I took the plunge. I've thought a lot about what one to pick and I decided that the best option for me to fit in with the arthritis was a trombone. My hands are always sore so that ruled out any instruments with keys etc to press so that is why I settled on a trombone as it slides ! ( so I think !) Anyway I bought a second hand one today much to the amusement of my family ! Does anyone on the forum play any instruments with their arthritis or condition ? I want to prove to them that I can do it! It's not the arthritis they are laughing at its me with an actual trombone - I know it's an peculiar choice and rather loud ! I just hope the RA doesn't decide to mess it up !
