Bad Guitar Habits Video Description
I injured my arm TWICE from playing guitar, developing terrible tendonitis.
Both times were devastating.
Both times I thought that I might have to quit playing guitar for good.
Instead of quitting I made it my mission to do everything I possibly could to heal, and to figure out how to prevent the problem from happening again.
In this eleven-minute video I share seven bad guitar habits that gave me tendonitis, how I healed from the injury, and I how I'm preventing it from happening again.
This is not medical advice, just my story of what I learned and what I'm still doing today for guitar-playing longevity.
Thanks for watching!
I hope you have a great rest of your week and that you get some fun guitar time in :)
