:welcome: to the forum Kenneth. :D

That's some rough road you've travelled. Great that you've battled back on playing guitar and good you've found one that suits you so well. :clap:

The open tuning and slide is a good idea if you have problems with the fretting hand. I know players who have given themselves a new lease of guitar playing life when disabled with arthritis in the left hand by playing slide. A slide that fits the finger well is worth its weight in gold if my experience of trying to play slide is anything to go by - several previous attempts fizzled out in total failure - largely it turns out through having much too loose fitting and poor quality a slide - till I discovered diamondbottlenecks.com. and invested in a made to measure quality slide.

Giving up the booze sounds a good alternative to drinking yourself to death, but takes a huge amount of willpower :thumbsup: - while not being at either end of that spectrum I've certainly found benefits from being on just 1 to 2 glasses of wine per week this last 7 months instead of 2 to 3 glasses a day. :cool:

Look forward to seeing you round on the forum.

Howdy. :welcome: from the mountains of New Mexico. Look forward to hearing your pickin'. Sounds like you have rarified taste in acoustic guitars. :thumbsup:
