Common Grip Techniques
A typical guitar neck grip forms a “Natural V” between the guitar neck and the palm of your hand. (See picture 1:1). The “Natural V” grip forces your thumb to support the guitar neck often causing basal thumb arthritis.
Another grip technique that his often used is to push the wrist towards the neck of the guitar and wrap the thumb around the top. (See picture 1:2). This grip keeps the wrist aggravated and can lead to repetitive strain injury (RSI) or carpal tunnel syndrome. You can also end up with a tingling feeling in your thumb by using this guitar grip!
