“Over several seasons the study showed glove response and glove save percentage increased on a game-by-game basis after practicing music – by ear on the guitar – within a few hours prior to playing hockey,” Monnich said, stressing it had to be played by ear and not sight reading sheet music. “Likewise, the agility of musicianship increased after playing hockey. And a more difficult music seemed to produce greater short-term stimulation and enhancement of these functions.”
It makes sense I'm sure playing guitar would strengthen your arm, wrist, fingers etc. And idk about muscle fibers but I'm sure the practice makes the info transfer from the brain to arm faster being good at reading music and computing it to your hand. That makes sense right ?
Rock on Hank
I just ran across this article and posted about it on my Henrik blog. I wonder how often Henrik plays guitar during the season and if he plays on game days. I asked Jim Cerny and am waiting for an answer.
