Hey,

i have been playing guitar for 3 days now, and it seems i havent been placing my left hand the right way on the neck.
this morning when i woke up my thumb felt a bit weird and so did mt index and middle finger, so i googled, and it look like i have symptoms of carpal tunnel synrome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpal_tunnel_syndrome)

so does anyone have some hand excercises that i can do before it gets worse and i need surgery.

and, where can i find a good tutorial on how to place my hand the right way.

,thanks.

your thumb should stay behind your middle finger for ultimate stretch

why does some dick always report a post, why not just move it. and considering this is a general thread....

to the OP

CT can get really nasty if not properly treated, i have it in both wrists, best case scenario stop playing for a few days, relax yor hand and periodically stretch it. worst case scenario is surgery.

there is a simple test for CT that you can do yourself.

tap on your wrist along the main nerve, if there is tingling in the thumb, index or middle fingers then you NEED to see a doctor. CT may not seem serious but untreated it can lead to nerve damage or the loss of use of the effected hand.


EDIT:
this may not have anything to do with technique, CT may have been there the entire time you just havent aggrivated it enough to rear its head.
