I feel discomforts and I was injuried playing the recorder. I cannot find a hands position.

Does anybody have this problem?

Thanks.

I feel so sorry for you.When i first got mine,i went insane tring to finger my soprano recorder.
Here is a really cool way to make a recorder.I soaked it in green water since it is wood.You have you be carful though so it does not damage the window.If you get a special recorder it might not hurt you because at the bottom,in stead of having two wholes at the bottom like tiny tini ones,mine does not have that really hopes that helps in some way

I haven't been playing very long but found out pretty quickly that trying to squeeze juice out of a recorder just made my hands cramp I play alto, so I just lay my fingers gently over all the holes and play an F. If it doesn't squak, my fingers are in the right place. I can play for hours as long as I keep my hands relaxed.

probably not considering the age of the post but others with the same problem might find my answer useful.

Well, I've been playing Alto because I found soprano to be too high pitched for my ears. Since I'm playing only for my enjoyment, that's all that counted for me. If you're already playing soprano, I believe the easiest transition would be to Tenor as the fingering would be the same as you're used to.
