Banjo,London Mandolin: trials and Tribulations (17) RE: Mandolin: trials and Tribulations 31 Jan 04

Fred Millers brought up a good point about muscle tension here.
I used to get awful pains across my shoulders, until it was pointed out that I had a really terrible posture.
Because the mandolin is such a small instrument it's easy to get into a bad habit of "crouching" over it. If you make a conscious effort to keep your back straight, and relax when you play, you avoid a lot of grief.
