GUEST,Barry Playing Guitar with Arthritis (110* d) RE: Playing Guitar with Arthritis 30 Jan 09

Hi Guys,

I've been playing the guitar for about a year now. Bit late in life as I am 53, still better late than never. I play most days and the joints on my fingers and thumbs have now started to swell and some days I find it too painful to play.

Have a copper bracelet and have been looking into Glucosamine/Chondroitan. I am also epileptic so not sure if this will clash with my medication (phenytoin and carbamazepine)?

Thanks for the tip about the extra low tension strings.
