So – you guys. Is there a way to play power chords without getting cramps in my thumb from all the (probably unnecessary) pressure I am putting onto the back of the fretboard?
Unexpectedly, playing power chords is actually a lot of fun, but as it is I can’t play a whole song (“Highway to Helsinki”, “Have You Seen This Boy?”, “Armed with Guitars” & “When Johnny Comes Marching Home”) without getting cramps.
Practice, I guess.
Same as with actually remembering those chords. Will have to do some work on that outside of Yousician, I think.
