Ok so I have been in bed for most of the week with a very nasty bout of flu sad.gif . Although the flu is clearing up im not really fit for anything yet as imhaveing breathing problems. I think it may be at least another 4-5 days before I can practice "properly". Im concerned I might start looseing my skills if i dont play soon! Any tips?

I got Mono awhile ago and couldnt play guitar for about the first 2-3 weeks i was sick, but when i did pick up the guitar, i felt i had decreased in skill and talent, but once the sickness started to go away, it all comes back to you in like 2-3 days, and you play better, or atleast i did.

Dont worry youll be back to shreddin' in no time

If you got hurt it means you are doing something wrong in your playing. I am practicing many hours a day and i never got hurt in 4 years of practicing seriously!

So you have to review the way you keep the guitar, the way you sit and pick!
