Left thumb hurt
Wojciech last edited by rckrd_proguitar
I have a problem, when I hold my finger for example on the 5th fret for a long time, I feel a lot of pain in my hand at the base of the thumb. I've been playing for years and it still doesn't change, my hand just doesn't seem to be adjusting.
Am I making a permanent mistake or is it just my nature? Is it possible to overcome this?

Sorry to hear that!! It's difficult to say if you're making a mistake in terms of how you're fretting the chords/holding the guitar without seeing a picture or film of your hand when playing - but if it's a problem that keeps occurring I'd go to someone with medical background to or physiotherapy to take a look at your hand problems. I've always gotten the advice to stop playing if my hand hurts, and then rest - so that you don't get even more problems. Does this happen right away when you start playing or after a few minutes or even an hour?
