How can I avoid getting carpal tunnel syndrome from playing guitar?

I don't really play video games anymore, nor do I fap. I don't have it, but I've heard people say they got it from guitar.

Use proper positioning, keeping your hand and wrist as straight in relation to one another as possible (thumb in the back of the neck position helps this), and if you start losing feeling in your fingers or feel tingling, stop playing.

You don't put as much muscle into guitar, it's rare for guitarists to get it. Bassists however, it's like a damn plague! Strenuous repetitive activities is where you can develop it. Drummers especially as well.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

My arm has never gone numb from guitar, video games, which I don't really play anymore, yes, but that's about it.

basically its from a repeated motion over and over... so just stretch your hands before and after playing. it's that simple. keep up a good blood flow through your hands and take breaks every so often.

Unless you're positioning your hand abnormally, you shouldn't get it from guitar. If you happen to take up drums though, be careful.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

As long as you don't get AIDS or run into a grue, you'll be fine. Fapping is also fairly dangerous.
