I play on acoustic probably around 5-9 hours a day, and my left hand/fingers is kind of sore and has been a bit uncomfortable for a couple of weeks. Not the injury type of pain, just more of the constant playing type.

And I'm kind of curious as to if I should be playing through this or maybe playing a bit less or taking some time off completely.

Also, I am aware of my left hand tension and how hard I push down on the fret so I do not believe that to be the problem.

2) Are you stretching your hands and fingers before playing that long?



I just do the one stretch where I put my hand against the wall and put some pressure on my fingertips.

Try warming up into it. Play for 20 minutes,take a break, play another 20, take another break and repeat until your hands can take 2-3 hours at a time. I would definitely recommend a break after 3 hours.
