finger joint pain from picking...?
This one's a bit odd, but here goes... the knuckly of my right (picking) hand's pointer finger's been hurting me on and off for a while now. It seems to happen when I've been practicing my picking a lot, although i'm sure it's augmented by the fact that i'm one of those "two fingers and a thumb" typists, and i type a decent amount (look at my posts here- i'm wordy, lol) At first, i was pretty sure that it was a result of the picks i was using- a dunlop 3.0 "stubby" would translate quite a lot of the impact of the pick into the joints holding it- so i've dropped down to lighter and lighter picks. Currently, I'm using a Fender Thin, but i'm still getting this ache. What gives? Does anyone else have a problem like this? could it be a result of improper picking technique? I can take a picture for anyone who has any background in this and could help me out, and i think i can do video on my sister's digital camera too, if that helps... Any thoughts would be appreciated, as this is pretty frustrating. Thanks,
