I can't imagine my hospital allowing that, these kind of stories show the kindness of people, which I always like. Did your hand recover or do you still play left handed, or still multi-handed?

I'm left-handed, though I learned to play trumpet "normally" without problem. I don't find it hard to play left-handed and sometimes switch hands in rehearsals to work my left-hand ring-finger coordination. If we end up playing the same section over and over in rehearsal, I'll start working on my right-handed upside-down fingering, ala Clark Terry. My left-handed upside-down fingering isn't up to snuff, however.

Perhaps it would be less painful to play a French horn than putting my right hand fist through a glass door which are now tempered glass if up to building code here. I've got an escape gadget in the glove compartment of our car that breaks glass that I'll use ... if I have to. It also cuts seat belts ... never know if I might need it.
My horns tell me that when they grow up they want to be pro horns like some of the very impressive horns listed below other forum member signatures. But they tell me I need to learn to play first. Gimme ten years...

When you consider it carefully Selmer were on the right track for perinet valves with their RADIAL design. As the fingers travel down, the finger tips get closer
