guitar force one

By leafo on January 19, 2020 11:57 pm

This year I am unable to practice guitar:

* Last week after submitting I played guitar a bit for practice but strained my arm so bad i couldn't type or work
* This weekend my fingers still hurt when trying to play

Old Age has caught up with me


This time around I mostly tried messing around with guitar effex plugins after writing the chorus part and then had to fart out the rest real quick at the end b/c I was running out of time

hmmm for some reason I thought we were around the same age but it's fine we all age at the same rate anyway anyway it's a chill song see you next week

strained arm? is your wrist at like a 90 degree angle when you try to fret? your arm tenses up if you try to play like that and that sucks; it feels bad and apparently will wreck your arm. oddly enough I think I have bad guitar hero/rock band technique (I can't play those games for too long anymore without hurting my wrist) but "okay" real guitar technique

maybe look at these guys' technique for a straighter wrist position

Sorry to hear the guitar is causing you pain but you're getting some sweet results nonetheless.  Digging the rocking vibe on this.

thank you for the very thoughtful response. I'm not that old, just complaining. I didn't play guitar for all of 2019 and now I'm trying to grind out 5 hour sessions to finish my weekly beat right before the deadline. I don't have the strength so my body is tense. I should be fine in a few weeks as I get back into the flow.

Impressive for a weeks work...great track, in fact. The pain sounds very frustrating, hope it subsides!

Have you considered a ukulele? It might not get these sweet sounds, but it won't destroy your arm.

This is rad! It has a kind of late 90s/early 2000s indie vibe. College radio sounds haha. I dig it.
