OK. I'm learning waking the demon by bullet for my valentine an i have small hand's. Now when i play the intro my hand starts to cramp up when i get to about the first riff after the intro i don't know if the way my wrist is bent or if its the way i place my fingers but it starts to cramp right across the middle of my palm were i would rest the neck of the guitar. does this usually happen to people who play the guitar with small hands
Ha i too have small hands which sometimes makes playing large stretches quite difficult. But your problem most likely comes from not being fully warmed up. Muscles will cramp if they are not warm and you try to overwork them. Thats probably your problem. If you play for 45 minutes and then try to play it and your hand still cramps, then perhaps your muscle endurance is just that low but i highly doubt that.
