Not you - me... I strangle my guitar necks. Always had a very hard picking attack, and my fretting hand seems to follow by 'vice-gripping' every note and chord. Obviously, that slows down a lot of my playing speed/dexterity potential and it certainly adds to my tendonitis problems of late. As somebody who's been playing this way for 28 years - what advice could any of you give me for developing a lighter touch? It seems like I can 'control' it for a short while, and then once I get into playing it rears it's ugly head again. Thanks for your suggestions!
