: Hey yal, well here goes. lately when i play my right hand has been getting tired. Oh, i'm right handed by the way, so my picking hand is the one. It's realy hard to play fast stuff for long periods of time. this is just a recent problem, it started about a month ago. please give me your thoughts. thanks

The brewmeister is right! Repetitive work related injuries are nothing to ignore. It may be the start of that dreaded "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome" that will pretty much end your bass playing. Only your doctor can tell. If not (way cool) then it may be a matter of finding the right excercises to get your stamina up to speed. Jaco said he was so fast because he played every day and lots to boot! Sounds like good advice to me! Go slow and build up. Any good book on scales and excercies is all you should need. There are some fingering combinations that should do the job. Good luck and don't look back! Dave
