"I began this week like many of you, wanting to make a fresh start in a new decade. Many were happy to see 2009 go. I know I was.
This year I am determined to get organized and finish a few of my projects, some simmering on the back burner for years.
I began a guitar book almost ten years ago. I was nearing completion in 2004 when I was involved in a horrific crash. Somehow I survived and began the long process of rehab.
To me the worst of my injuries were the crushed fingers on my left guitar-fretting hand."
