So I've torn my left rotator cuff and I can't extend my arm out from the side of my body more that 6 inches. Looks like it will be months before I'm back to normal. Right now I'm in excruciating pain when I move it or twist it wrong. I've tried playing and can only get close to a comfortable position is sitting with the body of my bass as far to the right as I can get it and still balance it. Anyone else been in this predicament? how did you cope?
