Okay, so strumming per Aldrine's instructions has led to a little tendonitis flare up, and I was wondering if anyone else is having / has had the same problem? I tend to get some tendonitis in that arm anyway, thanks to typing and working in a coffee shop, so it may just be that I'm predisposed. Anyone have any suggestions?

Well I got this from playing guitar and the best thing to do, like stated above, is go see a doctor. I took the hard way out and kept playing anyways. Well needless to say, it took a couple months just to heal. So it would be the wises decision to just see a doctor. :)

Ooh, are we listing uke injuries now! I quite nearly sliced half of my pointer finger off trying to learn how to do a "chunk" during Aldrine's You look wonderful tonight... Those videos are dangerous!

I hope your injury is getting better. That's pretty serious, man. Take it easy!

My guitar playing hurts after the first few hours just because of it, you'll ruin your playing for life if you don't take it seriously!!!
