So Today my son ended up braking his finger right at the joint and 6 hours later at the hospital we went home! Now the poor guy cant play his guitar. I told him to do legato style exercises ( right hand has the broken finger) Any suggestions would be awesome smile.gif He also has a very cumbersome half cast on his right hand!

Damn, that's got to be painful !

Legato you say ?

Well, look no further than Ben's Land of Legato. If you scroll down my lesson list you'll see them all near the bottom - some of my earliest lessons including dodgy video quality ! biggrin.gif

Ouch!
In addition to Ben's recommendation (+1), now's a good time to work the theory / composition aspects of music. Study structures of his favorite songs - to know how others craft music is a great leg up on how to craft your own!

Chris!

I'm sorry to hear that, man.

I wish him a speedy recovery! A broken bone isn't something I have ever experienced, knock on wood - however my one toe is double jointed and slips out of place once in a while unsure.gif

Ouch - hope he recovers fast!

When it comes to practicing guitar, legato does sound doable. He could basically practice legato and tapping. He can hammer on the first note and than do series of hammer-ons/pull-off runs. Also he can incorporate exercises involving open strings. Tap/Hammer-on the string> hammer-on>pull-off>pull-off to open string.

Another thing he could do is just get musically pumped up/inspired by relaxing and watching some cool concert DVDs on TV. There is always music theory which he can do while he is unable to practice. Last but not least - just watching lessons "visually can mean a lot and you can learn new things even without picking up guitar as you see "how its done" - time for surfing the GMC archive.
