It might not seem like a dangerous activity but there are a few potential pitfalls to be aware of!

Electric shock

It is possible in rare cases to receive a potentially fatal electric shock through the guitar, this is normally due to a combination of poor electricity supply and a guitar amp that is not properly grounded. You can use wireless to avoid shocks or always make sure all electrical equipment is fully tested and grounded safely before playing.

Wrist injury

You can get RSI or carpal tunnel through poor technique so always remember the golden rule: don’t bend the wrist!

Damage to equipment

Use a well padded guitar case and put your guitar on a stand instead of leaning against a wall. Ensure impedance is matched for all your amps and above all, take care of your possessions!
