My right arm is holding me back, I can't play like this.

I have to pull my whole arm back to get it in a decent position, and it tires ( or whaterver it's called, maybe tiers...) my arm.

While my left hand could go on forever, my right arm get tired as soon as i start picking, I pick with my wrist, I don't anchor and I don't think I'm very tense either, maybe just a little.

If I pull the shoulder down I can't get it in a posisiton and it sounds like crap.

I guess I'll have to try to upload some pictures but I can't do that right now.

...any suggestions on what to do?


I figured I'd post in this forum because... it belongs to the basics, could be wrong though.

would this be sitting down or standing?


Sitting, but the classical position helped me alot.

Practice standing as often as possilble; that's how you'll be playing for the most part, right?

Classical position should do you right then, it's the closest you can get to standing without actually standing.
