    journeybear - :)) I didn't think the Keys would be a hot bed of bluegrass. Boxes are mostly unpacked. Can't wait to get the instruments out and get back to it.

    We certainly are in a great place. We have already been to Rainbow Springs State Park. It is lovely. I bought a family pass to the state parks. We will be exploring this region a lot.

    I meet with two friends just about every week now. We took 3 months off when all the covid started but got back together a few weeks ago. No social distancing. We are all retired.

    Re: Playing with wrist/thumb pain

    I understand what you are saying, Mark. You definitely HAVE to find out where the pain comes from. I know a good classical guitarist who taught himself, used bad left hand technique and now cannot...

    Re: Playing with wrist/thumb pain

    I went to a hand specialist today. He said I have arthritis in my left wrist and the base joint of my thumb.

    Re: Question for Experienced Players

    I agree that it is most likely a jam thing. If you listen to the Bluegrass Album Band, you will find tunes they play

    Re: Question for Experienced Players

    I agree with you about speed, and yes, bluegrass players who can show speed usually do. It is

    Re: Shoulder pain in fretting arm?

    IMHO, the only place that pain goes away with time is with calluses on your fingers.

    Re: How much do you practice?

    Before I developed wrist/thumb pain I was practicing an hour a day. I have an instructor who determines what I practice
    and the goals I work for each week. That helped a lot.

    Re: Playing with wrist/thumb pain

    There should absolutely be no pain when playing. You need to develop good technique.
