Yusuf's return to his guitar came about when his teenage artist-musician son, Muhammad (aka Yoriyos), brought one home again. One morning, Yusuf was alone in the lounge when he looked over and felt a draw of curiosity overtake him. He slowly picked it up. "I put my fingers on the fretboard to make a 'C' chord," he remembers, "and surprised myself, 'It's still there!' It felt right. So I started playing again." On the 'Roadsinger' album, Yusuf even plays electric guitar on a couple of tracks, along with keyboards.
