I believe I'm developing carpal tunnel syndrome (lots of tingling in my wrists) from improper guitar technique, excessive typing, etc, and I believe it may have something to do with how I play guitar.

I used to have my wrist bent a lot, but I've improved on keeping it straight, and now I can play solos pretty well with my wrist straight. However, whenever I'm playing power chords, it's always bent. There's no way for me to play a power chord with it straight.

Here's some pics of what I'm doing. Is this bad for my wrist, and if it is, any advice on how to correct it?

I wouldn't worry about it. You're not gonna get carpal tunnel from that. At least I don't think so. It looks normal to me, the way you're playing power chords.

if you want to fix it, raise neck angle(pretend its a giant cello!) raise your neck towards your head and that will straighten out your arm to your wrist to adjust for the neck angle.


thats only way i can imagine on just fixing it. i am having this issue to and i rather not deal with pain/future pain.
