    Hey Todd,
    You ever had any wrist problems from playing 6 string exclusively?

    I'm really thinking about making the jump to 6 again, I played 6primarily for about 2 years from about 98-2000 and started getting a cyst on my left wrist.

    I think my technique has improved considerably since then and I'm finding myself really wishing I had that extended range again, I'm curious if there's some techniques you incorporate regularly or any tips you've gathered over the years.

    Keep the wrists straight and you should be's when you have them bent at those 45 degree angles that you get in trouble. Feel free to call me....the numbers are the same.
