Pain in fretting forearm when playing in Mandolin
I play guitar and banjo with no issue, but when I try to play on the mandolin, it feels like the tendons or ligaments about halfway up my forearm on the inside are sticking. It’s usually only when I have to play 3 or 4 notes very quickly that would require 3 fingers fretting quite close together.
I have watched some physio videos on youtube for guitar, mostly putting pressure on the parts of the forearm that hurt with your other thumb. They haven’t really helped.
Has anyone else experience of this? Most of the stuff I could find from googling was to do with people’s strumming hands.
