I've been playing the guitar for around 4-5 year's and through that time i've been upgrading bit by bit and finding ways to compliment my playing like equalateral plectrums and such.
One problem recently i've been having is the fact that when i play these days i don't feel like im making much progress.
You see the first guitar i got was a strat copy and i was able to play anything on it playing alot of muse songs the first song i learned was in Plug in baby and i learned that in a few hours and learnt many other's.
I got tired of the strat not only for the bad quality of it but the fact that the tone just felt light and i was getting into heavier hardcore punk genre and metal.
I upgraded to a epiphone specail II gt it's the current specail but a mahagony body and gibson 500 humbuckers it was a bargain and i took it. I was happy with the improved tone it was perfect and i continued to play and improve.
But over time i felt there been a problem that i can't play well as i do in the strat i tried playing Nothing else matters by metallica mastered the start but the solo i found it difficult i could play it but my movement felt inhibited and strained.
With this i had a thought that when i play standing alot of weight is being put on my right shoulder then the strat and i wondor is this the problem or am i just being silly?
If so and this is most likely the problem can a chambered body les paul help or should a look at different models for a compromise like an SG.
