    I wanted to know this because i don't have the full use of my right hand (but i am right handed), and i am very interested in playing just about any instrument i can get my hands on. i know that i won't be able to play as good as someone with both hands, but if any of you can be of any help, then plz don't hesitate.

    Harmonica can be done one-handed... but my data shows that even though its one handed its not safe while driving. Especially on the highway when its raining on heavy traffic.

    There's always vocals...

    How much can you get out of your right hand? If you can squeeze your thumb and index finger together you can play guitar.

    If you can flex one or two of your fingers you can play bass.

    Wes Montgomery plucked the guitar with just his thumb(bass can be played this way). A rock guitarist whose name skips my mind played with 1 or 2 fingers missing on his fret hand. As stated above, there is a one armed drummer. Stevie Wonder is blind. All 3 lead singers from Israel Vibrations have Pollio.

    Anything is possible.

    Is this a permenant or temporary condition?

    it would seem pretty permanent. With some more therapy it should get better, but it will never be 100%. I think you guys have inspired me to at least try.

    thanks.
