He suggests to “remember all the important ‘tricks’ you learnt and keep going over and over them in your mind- always exercise your hands and fingers- picking coins from the floor- picking up pins from a flat surface-constantly touch the tips of your fingers with the thumb and try to do it faster and faster- image playing your best solos ever in your mind before you go to sleep-daily.” In another post , Davies, who suffered a stroke a decade ago, writes, “I have no idea exactly what physical state Malcolm Young is in, but the public sending out negative vibes about the whole thing is not going to help at all.
