    ok ive been playing for 2 year now, so my hands are strong enough... blah blah blah.

    ok will be playing a song song that uses a repeated line a-----22-33 as am interlude and the
    e-000------
    the thing is if i play this song 2 or more times the musle between my first and second freting fingers starts to hurt... then if i work thou the pain, it starts to hurt real bad. i would'nt be asking about it if this is the only song it happened on

    i wondering if its something wrong with my hand form... so ive tryed using my 2nd and 3rd freting finger to help the pain go down... but im still wondering if theres any thing else i can do

    sorry for all the misspelled word

    NEVER work through the pain...you can seriously hurt yourself.

    as soon as it starts to hurt take a short break before continuing, then your hands will get strong.

    You're pressing too hard, use a lighter touch.

    Well try and keep your mind on track, because focusing on your technique is the only way that pain will go away. Good luck man.
