After putting it down for the day and just before posting this, I saw a comment elsewhere about moving the bar finger closer to the fret. This makes sense but I am wondering if any of you used any other strategies to get around this.
I don't remember any pain on the guitar but most of my guitar practice is done on an electric with really low action. But I can also hold a bar pretty well on my acoustic where the action is NOT low.
