#1: shoulder problems switching guitars.

Posted on 2005-12-04 16:40:37 by Dirk

I've been playing a 335 type guitar where my right arm (bicep) is resting
on the guitars body. Recently i've played a telecaster for a few hours and
noticed some discomfort while not being able to rest my right arm.
Bc of this i have some mild pain in my right shoulder now.
Any good tips/advice greatly appreciated.

You might try wearing the guitar higher until your bicep can rest on
the guitar, if you can play that way. I wear my Reverend (also a slab
guitar) higher than I do my Strat.

A massage therapist will really help by working on the trigger points that
cause the pain.

See a doctor.If it is repetitive motion problems it will be an easier fix.If
it is not, he can tell you.

I have been told that you should wear your guitar standing in exactly
the same position it is in when you are sitting. If you are not doing
this, give it a try to see if that helps. Good luck.
