I have been practicing Pavel's power Galloping ALOT recently, and aside from doing normal "slow" practice where I do everything perfectly while I gradually increase the tempo, I have started using the Speed trainer feature in GP5.

I am practicing this one section over and over, and each time the section repeats it gets bumped up 1-2 BPM. And during during this I start making small mistakes cuz I start to push myself real hard around the 85 BPM area. Anyway, my practice sessions it usually repeats about 15 times, and after this my left wrist (fretting hand) feels a little uncomfortable, I wouldnt really call it pain, but its pretty uncomfortable.... almost painful I would say. And the discomfort goes away pretty quickly (I usually stop playing after I do this workout) and after I stop playing, it goes away in about 5-10 minutes.

Anyway. Is this a problem? should I stop playing the moment I feel that discomfort? Could I just ignore this?

Sorry for making this explanation a little lengthy.

When you hear something that you really like, take guitar and kill the beast.

I use to be in front of computers 13-18 hours/day and before I bought a Powerball I suffer a lot of disconforts and pain mainly in my left wrist. When I was practicing guitar, I could play lika 15-20 minutes before intense pain.

Now I do 5 minutes of powerball exercises with each hand 2 times/day and I dont feel absolutelly no pain at all (I am doing this for a month or a bit more).

HEY, I am not selling Powerballs!!! :-) But it shows that a little harm up and exercises to raise the strength of arms/hands muscles can help a lot.

Actually, I play 1/2-1 hour without any disconfort... and dont play more because I really dont have time smile.gif
