  • Holy Crap!!! My playing endurance has gone out the window!!!

    I finally got a chance to play for more than 15 minutes last night so I got warmed up( Or so I thought) and started playing to some Jam tracks.. I was feeling pretty good and playing over a variety of different styles and decided to just heat things up and started ripping over a bunch hard rock tracks....

    Within 30min, my left hand was shot!!! Im honestly not sure If I could have played an entire gig. Granted, Im not ripping throughout an entire set but damn, I was just about locked up. My picking hand was fine though and thankfully, Im getting alot of accuracy back but I need to get my long distance chops back, its more than a little frustrating..

    It makes YJM all that more amazing when you think about it..

        muscle memory..it will come back to you..if i miss a day (extemely rare.)
        i use one of those hand-grip things..( i have them everywhere.)..i use them in the car when im out and have to drive..keeps me from flipping people off. ..they will help with your chops..and make a great warm up..
        drop some money and buy your self a bunch of them and leave them where you sit during the day..i have them at the desk im at and the car,office down stairs etc...its not like playing..but it helps alot..keeps the finger tips hard too..

            Are you quitting on me? Well, are you? Then quit, you slimy ****************ing walrus-looking piece of ****************. Get the **************** off of my obstacle. Get the **************** down off of my obstacle. Now. Move it. I'm going to rip your balls off, so you cannot contaminate the rest of the world. I will motivate you, Private Kage, if it short-dicks every cannibal on the Congo.

              Ha, I couldn't even play any of the lead stuff you do, so I have a feeling if I suddenly gained the knowledge to do so, my hands would also be ruined after 15 minutes.

                  That is soooo funny.

                  Kage, do your work dude, you've got the chops now use them

                  All kidding aside, I am finding my hands are cramping up on me, I keep saying it's the onset of old age, but there are a lot of great guitarists playing well past their sixties so either they have a secret or they exercise their hands a lot. I suspect hand exercising is the key here. We don't stay young forever

                        I know whatcha mean, Kage. I was doing brutal death on bass stuff back in 02...was out of the band situation for for about four years, just grooving, doing stuff.

                        Went back to learn some new songs to jam with some dudes in 05. Couple of songs later I was shot. Need to keep up with that stuff, or it sneaks up on ya.
