Is this a difficult transition?

Charles:
It will also pose a physical challenge. Playing upright requires some real muscle development in your hands. It is not insurmountable. But you will need to take it slowly. Build up your strength. Pushing too fast can net you some chronic hand problems. They will be stiff at first. But as with any other physically strenuous activity, you will, in time, forget how difficult the first steps were. I would say give your hands at least a month to get in shape-- don't despair before then. And I mean daily practice, at first perhaps no longer than 15 minutes at a time. Many short sessions is always better than long.
