It Only Hurts When I Play Guitar and Blog

(photo:maximmag.co.uk)

Blogging has been sparse lately as I'm recovering from a lower back spasm that occurred last week. Walking and lying flat are good, but sitting is BAD.

Searching for this image also led me to a nice little article, "15 Back Pain Tips" from Maxim Magazine (go figure...).

Probably also a good time to plug Building the Ergonomic Guitar Blog, which features some items on taking care of your back and avoiding repetitive strain injuries.

One tip I can personally vouch for is sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair or sofa.

Play light guitars too! Besides better resonance, it's easier on the old back! Don't carry amps and cabs any more than you have to either.
