When playing E-Type barre chords ONLY (Ex. F major barre), I get pains in the meaty part of my hand between my left thumb and index finger. My my muscles sort of lock up and it makes it hard to move the thumb around without experiencing some pain in my hand there. Is this common when you first start learning to play barre chords? (I started playing barre chords last week). Although, the pain in my hand releaves itself after a few minutes of playing normal chords or not playing at all.

One of the first things i learnt was barre chords, and hell it was pain to do (in both my index, my tumb and in the rest of the hand)
Now i can do them just fine, just practise alot, make small pauses and continue.

I got powers like spiderman did, except I model everyone else's powers poorly.

barre chords suck at first; eventually you'll find a way to position you thumb and fingers so that the chord sounds correct and you don't feel pain.

proper thumb position( thumbtip in the middle of the back of the neck) makes things way easier.
Why you reading this?
