I recently discovered the joys of a metronome, and was playing scales faster and faster. i got to the point where the muscles in my tendons hurt, and i can go fither, but it is very uncomfortable. Oh yeah, im talking about my left hand here. What im asking, is to get better, and faster (with the left hand) do you play through the pain, or do you take it slow and stready? Im trying to play through the pain, because i can do that with my right hand when i play hard. That last sentence made me sound like such a newbie AnYwAY guys, can you help me with my little dilemma?
