When I started playing steel guitar I weighed only about 140 pounds and I could barely lug my D-10 into a club. I’m 38 years older and 47 pounds heavier now and it’s still a job, but at least I can still do it without having a heart attack or throwing my back out. The secret? I’ve worked out all these years, kept in shape. But… it’s not that simple. Hell, you can always find a gym, but you don’t come across these special picking-finger dumbbells just anywhere.
