Subject: RE: Building stamina - guitar backup
Practice is really the basic key to the whole problem. I've found that a good bit of stretching is also really good for the aches. The main problem that I have on occasion is the right shoulder/arm aches that comes from playing really hot sets of irish tunes with overzealous fiddlers and flute-players! :) Sometimes we end up goin' so fast that I almost lock up, and have to resort to some pretty clever rhythm banging tricks to cover it up. But that's actually ended up making our sets pretty interesting!
