My wife and I had a conversation, she didn't think there were any blind guitarists. And I said of course there are. What about Jose Feliciano.

She didn't really know who he is, but she is much younger than I am.

Anyway, I couldn't think of any other blind guitarists. Well, I'm sure there are lots of blind guitarists, but I mean fairly well known blind guitarists.

Which suprises me, since you don't really need to see to play guitar and also it's a very tactile experience. You don't just hear it, you feel the vibrations in your hands and fingertips.

So anyway, who are some blind guitarists I might now but I just can't seem to think of?

Now look at them yo-yo's that's the way you do it you play the guitar on the MTV

Did you know that the word "gullible" is not in any dictionary?

Feliz Navidad! Feliz Navidiad!.......yuck
What about Jose Feliciano?

I'd like to see conjoined twins playing a double neck :D

I knew a guy without arms and legs. He played the guitar.
He used his tongue to hold the notes on the guitar.......

He gave it up though. He said the picking was driving him nuts

I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but when
you're a 22lb sledge, do you really have to be?

You can't forget Esteban, from the Home Shopping Channel. He is always wearing sunglasses. 8)

Just kidding.

I've got a lot of good ideas. Trouble is... most of them suck!
