    Is there something certain radius of fretboards that lends itself to style of play, whether its chords or non chord playing?

    I have a JB with 9.25 radius i think and my chords are painful.

    I was playing some Maiden and it was a simple shape 5th string 7th D and G, it was Maiden so it was fast playing. I had to stop 1/4 way through with my left hand cramp up at the meat in between my thumb and index finger.
