Jazz guitarist Grassel is making his way back from near death

Jazz Guitarist Jack Grassel nearly died from a rare staph infection.
Luckily he's recovering and he is making his way back.

"Basically, I had to relearn the guitar," he said. "I had lost a lot of dexterity for playing guitar, and worse, I had forgotten much of the material I knew. Some of it gradually came back on its own, but a lot of my technique and material I play required lots of work and concentration."
