Hey, This is the second time that after a bit of guitaring etc i've got up the next day and found my left hand is ****ed and when i try an play feels like ive got muscle strain.

Is this normal for a noob, whos stepping up the playing. Is it just a case of building the muscles up or am i going for carple tunnel lol

tingly sensations? if so then could be RSI/carpol.

May be an attack of tendonitus, i dno see a doctor if it persists. And if it does hurt, dont play guitar/fap.

I get the wrist strain still, and ive been playing for 3 years. I've made a fast riff for my band (hardcore/metalcore) and I used to only be able to play it 4 times before my wrist committed suicide.


I kept at it, like playing it loads and loads. It's fine now, but I still get it whilst playing other fast riffs.

Just keep practicing, but don't play fast when your wrist is hurting, because it makes it much worse. Your wrist aching is a sign of you body telling you to stop (Similar to coughing when trying screamo with the wrong technique)

Hope this helps a bit

I had that a couple weeks ago. You've just over-used it; so teak a break for a couple of days, and you'll be back to normal soon!

Never heard of being left handed? Or using the infamous 'stranger' technique?

i found that if you commit a new thing to memory it doesnt hurt your wrist as much from playing sloppily

well i figured the guy was right handed since the pain was in his left hand (which is most common for right handed guitar players)

edit: whats the stranger technique? i would like to know
