Going off at a bit of a tangent to my normal blog posts but still relevant to my progress (or lack of) in learning to play clarinet .
For many years I have had carpel tunnel syndrome, this makes the hands go numb when not in use, especially at night. As it got worse over the years I felt I was losing control of my fingers. First I had problems holding a pen, then found I could no longer touch type. Couldn’t be helping with my attempts to learn clarinet but didn’t want to make excuses.
