Yo.. I play electric guitar.. But i had to stop performing.. I have mild scoliosis with quite significant curves.. And the guitar was a little to heavy for me and my back.. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

exercise. You need to build the muscle up a bit and get more souple.
I have the problem. My muscles get really enflammed and tender on one side.
The best things to do are:
sit-ups, but with your legs bent in the air
legs straight up, try to touch your toes (this one knackers you)
basic toe-touching
and just general footy-style stretching

get a lighter guitar

oh, you could try one of the straps that rests on both shoulders, spread the weight

stand up straight lady.

stretch and do back exercises. and do yoga. seriously. sounds like a stupid thing to do, but it really does help.

Play a hollowbody. They tend to be lighter.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

If you play metal, get a h-1000. Lightest guitar ever, feels like your playing nothing

Try playing lighter guitars like an SG, stay away from Les Pauls and stuff, sucks for you though

Wouldn't it look weird on stage?


well, yeah depends on your style of music but i think that would be better than not being able to play at all

well whatever...if the other suggestions work for you...your situation can't be too bad i just thought of you having a, well, very bad disease ^__^ but nevermind...

i wish you good luck ^^
