guitar position. if you're standing, raise the guitar.
if sitting, do the same sort of thing, rotate the neck up a bit further.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I always sit down when playing and I always have it straight down.

try to raise it it a bit, check the angle between your hand and wrist.

I wrote a short article that touches on this: http://stuartbahn.com/i-cant-play-guitar-standing-up/

Thanks, I can play standing up though. I just rarely do because Im a lefty and play a right handed guitar, so as of right now i don't have a strap for my guitar. But yeah I angled the guitar a little more and there's a lot less stress on my hand
