I've noticed if I sit on a chair with my guitar in my lap, my right forearm begins to tense up and hurt. What am I doing wrong? I try to relax, but nothing seems to really help.

Dude same here, it didn't happen to me until this week. It's so annoying

Edit: maybe some weird reaction to the weather??
Edit #2: try playing standing up, it's my temporary solution when it starts to tense up.

Funny, I was just doing the same. I think it's just because I'm too tired though.

Try sitting upright, focus on your breathing or something else. Sorry I'm no real help

Try the classical position. It should take the strain of your right arm.

i agree, classical position, you dont have to hold your right arm up, plus you get better high fret access

RULES THE WORLD!. I always play like that, especialy for sweeps.

Go get a massage if it keeps hapening.
