As the thread name would imply I am trying to take a peak if only in my imagination as to what the act of playing guitar would feel like when one is a bonkers good virtuosso...(I hope I am not going to be stepping on Pebber's toes when asking this question because I am firmly convinced that this player repressents but a fraction of Pebber's past accomplishments...though it is probably the one that he gets hounded on the most often) But when someone who is the calibur of say Buckethead picks up the guitar and begins to perform. I am wondering what they are expieriencing physicaly (especially when they are performing musical ideas of a highly technical nature that are most likely unreplicatable by others) Do they ever experience discomfort from having to perform goliath left hand stretches...does their picking hand ever lock up? Do they encounter any sort of labor pangs or discomfort beyond that which was initially necessary to get to such a high level. To any who respond please dont feel like this question should only be in regard to Mr. B, there are many other mind-blowing players out there and I posit this question in regard to any of them.
