    Hi Chuck,

    It’s normal to get discomfort with playing the guitar. Best to take frequent breaks, shake the hands and stretch them before playing. It’s also possible that your hands are tense when playing. Tony has some stretching exercises in the Skill courses section i believe. He also covered some tips for that in his Acoustic Tuesday YouTube program recently.

    I get a lot of discomfort in my thumb joint too, which i believe is due to arthritis in my case. I use massage, hand grips, pain relief ointments which help a bit.

    I hope things get easier for you
