3 months ago I got tendonitis in both elbows from playing my acoustic ukes—worse in my chording hand. It's the first time I've had this problem in 1 1/2 years of playing daily—must have over-practiced. I have stopped playing, but hope this will go away in a few months. If it does, I'm thinking of trying an electric ukulele—not electrified acoustic, but the kind that looks like a Fender Strat. I tried a friend's electric guitar and it took 25% of the effort to press the strings compared to my acoustic ukes. Not sure if my style will have to change—I like combining finger style with chording—but it's better than not playing at all. Can anyone speak to the ease of playing an electric? Or downsides?
