I have a Bastari 30 button anglo and finally got around to learning tunes on it.
There is one problem however, the leather straps cause pain where thet cross over just behind my index finger knuckle. I do have rather small hands, so I suspect that this may be the problem.
JimLaabs music stocks Excalibur padded concertina straps, although they're not cheap. I have tried softening the straps with leather conditioner and saddlesoap.
I'd appreciate any suggestions.
