Compensating for a Disability – Guitarist Billy McLaughlin

Right hand dominant, Billy McLaughlin, plays the guitar left-handed.

TBI survivors often have a life-long disability. The temptation, and sometimes the advice, is to submit to the disability, often causing one to stop an activity that he or she loves. This video tells the story of Billy McLaughlin’s early life. His passion for the guitar led him to develop a unique sound that made him one of best up-and-coming guitarists in the world. Then he got a neuromuscular disease (focal dystonia – see this video for details) that affected his right hand and his ability to play the guitar. This video shows that he didn’t give up. He accomplished a seemingly impossible task – he learned to play the guitar equally well with his left hand. This uplifting story shows the power of the human spirit and will affect anyone who is trying to deal with a disability.
