I quit playing fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo and guitar, in Febuary because of multiple large sores appearing on my hands. Granuloma Annulare. Doctors told me that it would take years to clear up.

In the meantime, I went to the Cleveland Clinic to deal with another, much more serious disease. At the clinic I was infused with a drug called Rituximab. TaDa! The sores have mostly clearedup. I don't know if this recovery is temporary or permanent. I had sold off most of my instruments, including a Mo'Bettah. I kept a Kamaka tenor and a Fluke tenor.

Last night , I played the Kamaka and fell back in love with it.

It's a Miracle!

The first song I played was the "Seven Seconds" by Joe Crookston, song that you arranged at my request.
