I bought a Mexican Telecaster a couple months ago so I could shut the door, plug in headphones and play late night/early morning without waking up my wife. And I've come to enjoy it. But!
I've only been playing guitar for a couple years, and almost all of it on an oval hole. I'm not a good picker by any stretch but, on my GJ guitar I'm relaxing my wrist and finally fitting in to a posture that has me picking behind the oval hole and well, wrist or arm pain is pretty rare.
Yet on the Tele, I'm getting regular elbow pain.
I am picking more lightly on the Tele, and trying to pick more lightly still. And I'm trying to rest my wrist/palm on the guitar more, since I can't slab my arm on the body like I can on the gyspy guitar.
I assume most folks on this forum have already played electric for a long time, but this is my first electric, so in that respect I'm sort of coming at the problem backwards. Anyway, if anyone has experience with this problem, any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.
