You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

I know what you're talking about, threadstarter.


I had that a lot while playing..are you anchoring? That caused me a whole bunch of pain and when I stopped, it went away.

I used to get it when I was still a beginner at barré chords. But you say that you have been plaing for a couple of years and that the pain still doesn't prevail, so I'm guessing you're doing something wrong, have you checked with other guitarists?

You masturbated too much.

But really >_> Jinskee I think he means his left hand. I think I read about someone else with the same problem. It still prevails after a couple years? O_o I've never had this problem, maybe you're doing it weirdly.
