Hi, Adam. Thanx so much for what you do, both on YouTube, and the online teaching and website.
My history is that I spent the late 70s, all of the 80s, and the first part of the 90s playing. A whole lot. So I was a lot younger and my hands could stand some bad technique. I quit playing around 1994 and didn't play a bit until last July when the desire hit me really hard to play again.
I'm playing on a fairly regular basis and I try to get in an hour of playing/practicing every day. The video on the movable-anchor technique was a tremendous help to my playing (and I LOVE that inlay between the pickups!!). But now, I'm running into hand cramps in both hands after I've been playing for an hour or so. It's not painful, but it does hamper the playing quite a bit! I'm holding my right arm slightly away from my body as I play and that has helped. But I'm not sure how to adjust my left-hand technique. And I'm wondering if I'm taking on too much too quickly. I'm trying to play slightly less hard and use less left-hand pressure when I play. Are there any other things I should be addressing that might help this situation? Back in "The Day", I could play for hours and hours without this problem.
Thanx for any suggestions!
