: how do i really prevent Right hand fatigue (right handed player asking)
: Are there special techniques anyone can share??
: And please...I KNOW straight out practice will do..
: But i need a quick way to do it.
Every time I feel my fretting hand starts to wear out, I realize that I've been fretting too hard... and it's usually on the more difficult riffs/runs, too. If this is the problem, try taking your thumb off the back of the neck and see if you can come at least pretty close to playing those more difficult riffs without the use of the thumb. This is how I give myself a "wake-up call" to the fact that I don't have to fret hard to get a nice tone. You'll also find that your playing will improve... you'll get faster AND get better tone. Hope this helps -
