Jeff Healy - Guitar Question

A JamPlay Member Asks...

"Hcso asked "I just wanted to say something about the late great Jeff Healy. Anyone who likes blues and rock and roll who don't know the name look him up because he was the real deal. He was blind since the age of 1 and still managed to become a legend. Playing with the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughn. I was wondering if anyone has tried to play the guitar blind folded to get the same affect Healey had to over come, and would this be an awesome way to strengthen your senses around the guitar? I would think if you can play good blind you would be able to play great without. Me I'm not to good blind folded because I look at the guitar a lot but I'm working on it. Mainly would be good for beginners I think. I like the idea. Josh.""
