    I am a very small person and I have a standard size guitar. The guitar as a whole hurts my arms. Should I get a smaller one?

    Thanks for your video! I watch your lessons! I’m a beginner! But I have an issue with a sore left elbow while playing chords. I think it may be due to the tension from my fingers pressing on the guitar strings. I tried positioning my elbow and fret hand closer to my body & at a different angle, but I still get the pain in my elbow & along my forearm. Do you know how to stop/prevent this?

    Just came back from my 45 high school reunion. 3 of us played all week at evening parties. Im sorry, but I love playing to much and enjoy how numb my fingertips are! Lol! Does that make me a sicko? Imagine being a band musician travelling doing shows every night. Just a thought.

    help, so i’m playing guitar a lot, and i also want to keep doing that but recently i noticed a sharp, stinging pain randomly showing up in one of my fingertips. It’s only for a moment and then gone again, but it hurts really bad. i also had/ still have lightly tendon problems in my wrist… does anyone else have the same problem and know what it is/ knows what to do about it?
