I was browsing around for some Satriani vids on YouTube and I came across this video of a blind guitarist. He's damn good. If you haven't seen it, then you should check it out - it's amazing. That just gives me all the more motivation to practice harder.

I'd imagine it would be easier to play guitar blind, it'd improve your understanding ten fold because you'd only be paying attention to one of your senses as opposed to two. Still - hella cool. tongue.gif

I think like Owen wink.gif
I also saw a video of a guitarist who had no arms...
That was amazing.

Anyway this blind guitarists playing is really nice imo.

Rick Allen, the drummer from Def Leppard, lost one arm in an accident and still to this day plays drums. He just needed a few modifications to his drum set.
