It is nerve deafness and I wore an analog hearing aid from age 15 to about 40, in one ear, though I have a severe loss in both. After that I went digital. I do really well with it, in fact, during that period I made my NY Debut and did a few tours around the Far East, etc. I was a contestant in Guitar 84 (Toronto), Scott Tenant won...
I started to play again for fun...oh I have 2 kids as well, so it is a busy life.
I now have digital hearing aid(s), but hate wearing the one in my left ear. The guitar sounds wonderful to me with the music program on my right ear, the left one is just too much.
Glad to hear from some of you others! This is quite a collection of guitarists!!!
You can see me http://www.charlesmokotoff.com on the web if you are interested....
Oh, I wear aids, mine is really pretty severe, dunno why I went on as a pro guitarist in my salad days...I don't have too much trouble with music, just conversation.jrldev wrote:Yes I suffer from hearing loss ( I am now 77) but it has not deter me from playing with the help of state-of-the-Art
hearing equipment. I do not need it when I am alone playing and practicing but I use it when I am with a larger music group. You should have your hearing check by a professional just to confirm the severity of your hearing loss and recommend the proper action/aide.
