once you learn… you can teach me… then we can jam and cover pearl jam tunes like back in the day…

1. adjustable tension wrist support *important* keeps your wrist straighter when you fret and minimizes any pain associated with your entire arm
2. a big jar of aloe vera, the blue one has pain relief ingredients in it or a bucket of ice
3. less pressure on strings or lower the gauge 10-45
4. a fine body of brandy (to drink, LOL)
5. when it hurts too much-it is time to stop to avoid serious muscle injury
6. a pair of thin cotton gloves filled with petroleum jelly to soften the calluses when they begin
7. guitar back strap helps, so you can just slide it off easily
8. before you start WARM UP EXERCISES like stretch out your hands, fingers, and arms.
9. correct playing position- don’t wear your guitar too low
10. please, please, please learn “Love me tender”
