The Grand Ole Opry recently had Rory Hoffman, an incredible instrumentalist/singer who takes a different approach in playing guitar.
He plays similar to a steel pedal player with the guitar in his lap, however he doesn’t use a slide, he uses a unique finger technique which impresses even the most fond of guitarists.
This is because he has been playing since the age of 3 years old, and he had to develop a comfortable way to play being blind.
We try to keep legally blind out of the equation as in an interview he stated:
“There’s nothing legal or illegal about it. I’m just as blind as it gets.”
Whether you are a musician or not, you can’t help but admire this man for his ability to win people over with such talent.
