Well, I've decided to step up my guitar playing and I'm trying to play a bit harder songs and I've started 'Under the Brdge' and I was wonder, I'm doing harder chords now, so, are my hands supposed to hurt? Like they kinda of hurt but not bad enough where I want to/think I should stop playing.
I'd say it's just the tendons in your fingers stretching. Once you stretch them out it shouldn't hurt any more.
i need to warm up for a while to make the pain not show up really early, but eventually i still get it because i just started. but if its really bad pain, i rest for as long as i can hold out :P
