I use this approach and my right arm never falls asleep. :bow: :bow:lolligagger said:Another approach to consider is training yourself to take a break occasionally and reach with your strumming arm to grab a sensible malt liquor beverage in between songs. This method also has the advantage of lubricating your vocal chords to prevent a chronic strain injury from developing. :tongue:
this also works for me---rippinglickfest said:I'm assuming you're playing acoustic guitar? Try playing standing up (if you are not) or altering your seated positon.......raise the headstock of your guitar up so that the body lowers. Lastly try NOT to rest any part of your arm on the guitar........try anchoring your picking hand instead and leave your arm free to move. If you must put your arm on the guitar rest it on the face and not the edges.........which cuts of the circulation.
Hope this helps
