Right hand position on electric guitar
« on: September 10, 2021, 12:15:50 pm »
I have been playing acoustic guitar for some time- mostly rhythm. Even there I have a slight issue with my right hand fingers. Even though I rest the inside of my elbow on the guitar, my fingers rest on the guitar and start aching after a while. It's not been a big deal so I haven't bothered about it.

I recently got an electric guitar and I am starting to play more melodic lines. This seems to be a much bigger issue on the electric guitar and I need to figure out how to keep my right hand stable without resting the fingers on the guitar.

The other challenge I am facing is how to mute the strings I am not playing with my right hand. This problem seems to be related to the previous one.

Thanks in advance for your tips!
