You're not the only one w/ a hurt arm. :(

Last week I managed to tear my bicep apart from my shoulder in my right arm. (Yep, it hurt!) Had surgery done on Friday to have it re-attached. I'll be off of work for 10 weeks. This has definitely put a cramp on my playing style! :o

I know that doesn't help ya much. If you're new to playing the guitar, it might be just a simple problem of training some of your muscles to do new things. Picking and strumming do involve using your right arm muscles in a manner that is very different from 'normal' usage. It'll probably get to feeling better with practice as time goes on.

Keep at it, and good luck! :)

Everything is OK in the end.
If it's not OK, then it's not the end.
