I went through that on YT a few years ago - interesting! You don't happen to remember what aria he is talking about when he says the situation is ugly (possibly a daughter trying con her father out of some money) but the music is beautiful? I would like to find it, but not enough to watch all the videos again...
No!It has inspired me to try and learn to play a musical instrument in my retirement. The piano would have been my first choice but for missing the top two joints of my right ring finger. My next choice would be the classical guitar.
Now...a couple of questions.
1. At 75 am I too old to start learning to play guitar and
There are others on here who know more about technique than me, but FWIW I think you could make that work. Some players do use their little fingers. Every hand is different, obviously, and it would probably help if your little finger happens to be quite long. In lots of cases I think you would use the middle or index finger as a substitute, rather than the little finger, but you would need the little finger in some chords and other situations.2. Would the missing finger on my right hand be too much of a hinderance. From the few video clips that I've looked at, the little finger doesn't seem to be used much. If this is the case would I be able to train this finger to take the place of it's missing neighbour? I would be starting from absolute scratch with no prior musical training whatsoever.
