Margo Building stamina - guitar backup (25) Building stamina - guitar backup 12 Oct 01

I've picked up flatpicking like nobody's business! I am really excelling and loving it. You might think I've been playing for several years to hear me. BUT when it comes to playing back-up, I STINK!!

My fretting hand gets so tired when playing back-up and I get very sloppy. I thought that perhaps I was pressing too hard and tried to concentrate on pressing as lightly as possible but the problem persists. I wonder if I'm overlooking a simple answer to my problem or if it just takes time. I've been playing for almost a year now. Any suggestions? Thanks friends, Margo
