So, as I sit down and play, everything feels comfortable. I can easily stretch fingers from fret 1 to fret 5 and from fret 3 to fret 8 on the low E string. But when I stand up and play something like Paganinis 5th caprice or G major scale 3 notes per string I feel pain in my hand. And its not from stretching, pain is in the wrist, right under the pinky. Am i holding it wrong? is there a lesson which would help here? I dont think that wrist pain is something that will just pass. Any help, please?

You should adjust your guitar strap so that when you're standing up, the guitar stays pretty much in the same position as it is when you're sitting down.

Don't worry, you're not the first and you certainly won't be the last, haha, we call it 'hiding in plain sight'
