    Hi admin,
    I was talking to an American Bluegrass performer after a gig and he told me about the great discomfort he had - 'shin splint' type symptoms - from stomping to his music night after night.I have had milder symptoms myself after good weekends of the jigs and reels (although I am quite fit) Got to chewing on the biomechanics of it all, and thought I'l throw it out to the Arena heads. I write/ perform comic verse as a hobby so decided to pose my problem by way of a few verses, just to lively things up.
    Hope the attachment works!
