Chris Bosh plays the blues: Heat star learning to play guitar (VIDEO)

A potentially life-threatening ailment will give you a new-found perspective on life. Miami Heat star Chris Bosh admitted as much recently as he discussed the blood clots on his lungs that ended his season and put a scare in the Heat family. It’s nice to have a hobby, for starters — something you can go to and just get away from the rest of the world.

For many people, that escape is playing music, and you can count Bosh among them if his recent Instagram post is any indication, as it seems he’s learning to play the guitar for his "summer project."

That blues progression isn’t shabby at all, but when is Bosh going to be able to start his own mariachi band?
