I have a question, and a comment for you. After my stroke, I couldn't tap my foot in time with music to save my life. Luckily, that skill returned. It returned spontaneously. One day I couldn't do it at all. The next day, I could do it. I played saxophone (alto and baritone) from the 2nd grade, through high school. That
instrument I was good at. The guitar, not so much. I play just for personal entertainment, or to disturb my daughters. If I really want to make them mad, I'll sing too. I figured I'd learn mandolin,too, because it is so small, and I need help with small motor coordination. It only has 4 strings, so it has entirely different chords than a guitar.
Music is a great therapy tool (device?) because it forces you to keep the tempo, or fall behind. It doesn't wait for anyone. Anyway, I'm all for getting a stroke survivors music group going. I never seem to be able to tell where I'll learn something from.
Another hobby of mine is stereo, and vinyl records. I bought my big-rig stereo before I got married (I'd never be able to afford it these days). I also have about 10,000 LP's too. Those get spun on a regular basis. So, I am both a hardware, and software guy. Of all the LPs I own, I have every genre, rock, jazz, blues, country, classical, swing, but no rap.
My other avocation is semi-work related. I spent 20+ years in the telecom industry (I installed the phone systems for Northwestern University, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and others too). We phone guys used to laugh at the haphazardness of data guys. We were always so persnickety about things. Everything had to be just so. Data guys never were like that. I wondered what would happen if I were to cross-pollinate those skills. As of this writing, I can make a PC jump through a hoop. I can also design web pages, having taught myself HTML, and CSS. I don't do it often enough to be really good at it though. At least I'm trying to keep busy. Ah, well... Dinner's on. More later.
