Ive been playing guitar for only three months, and practice everyday. Over the past three days ive been experiencing a pain on my right shoulder. Could any1 tell if its a common injury for playing a guitar?

I think i've read about guitar injuries like that, usually due to playing in a bad/wrong position or over working it. Try different more comfortable positions to play in and take a break every now and then. Keep it up and good luck with the guitar.

its probaly from bad posture, and playing too much in a short period of time. like what zeppelinpage4 said, take a break and work on differnt ways to play guitar to where you feel comfortable.

If its sitting down then you might have a serious problem. I unfortunetly hurt both of my shoulders in my glory days when I used to bench around 300 lbs. Now I have early traces of pain in my shoulders when i play guitar standing up or if i even try to bench at all. Later in life I'll be in serious trouble though, However I've never experienced pain while siting, Maybe your anchoring wrong or something...
