How can I stop my left hand aching?
Getting the left hand chord shapes right is a big problem for most beginners and often leads to achey hands and stiff fingers.
Most find that their "death grip" on the neck will relax after time and practice. However, if you want a head start on proper left hand position and shape then check out the Guitar Space Trainer - invented by a British guitar teacher to overcome this problem. The space trainer helps you form the correct left hand shape... once you've mastered it you can remove the trainer and look like a real guitarist!
Aching hands are soon overcome once you have learnt the correct hand position, relaxed a litle and... practice, practice, practice.
The guitar hand trainer is available worldwide from guitar-gizmo.com
