Just read where Vito Bratta injured his wrist playing classical guitar back in 1997, and can hardly play now. He says it hurts to slide his hand up and down the neck. Only nylon strings are manageable for short periods of time. Completely out of the business and unable to do a reunion tour or anything. How emotionally painful this must be. I can't imagine being separated from my electric guitar and compared to him I'm a total Hack. Never realized a wrist injury from playing guitar could linger that long. Especially considering this guy supposedly practiced 10 to 14 hours a day for years!

That might have something to do with it. It's ok to be passionate but too much of anything is too much. The clue is in the word 'too' ! ohmy.gif
