I'm Heiko (also called Oughton) from Germany and I'd like to share my story with you. I was diagnosed with PD in 2013 after I had a long journey seeing doctors and suffering from various symptoms. First encounter was passing out on a bike ride in 2007. I am a professional Guitar Player and music producer. In 2011 I felt that my playing got worse. So I started to get into new practise routines. But the more I played the worse it got. In 2012 I quit playing because the stiffness in my fretting (left) hand wouldn't let me play anymore.
I went to the hospital and tried a few meds. I developed my own excercises to keep my brain working. It's all focused on right brain - left brain thinking. With that daily routine of 2 or 3 times 10 minutes I got back to play again. I changed the technique and was able to play at professional level again. I wrote and played an album called "Leave The Marked Path" which was released in 2014. In 2016 I released another Album "Jasper's Warning".
With my music I would like to encourage people and say that anything might be possible as log as you don't loose faith and motivation. You can find my music for free on the internet. Just google the album titles. They are on spotify, itunes and several other platforms.
I would like to get in touch with other musicians suffering from PD and see if my excercises can help others as well.
