I suffer from multiple sclerosis and have limited use of my hands. None the less, I find my emotions and memories from my childhood and youth - my guitar playing days -- kick in and make the struggle to regain lost skills more enjoyable. My playing abilities, as time, age, and disease progress will be what they will be; however, for me, following the score and/or tablature, chords, and strumming instructions while listening to the music feels like a mind body exercise in dealing constructively with depression due to multiple sclerosis. I do not know if Mr. Clapton, Hal Leonard, Inc., and others who designed and made these tutorials possible had this benefit in mind. I thought you would like to know. Thank you.
