Hi- I just recently started learning 2xbass, but its killin my left hand! I feel like I can only get a solid hold of the strings when I lock my thumb behind the neck, so its not bending at all- especially in half position.
I've also noticed some wierd cramping near the top joints in my second and third finger.

anybody have any suggestions?

also, do you think once my hands adjust to 2xbass I wont be able to play guitar with the same dexterity?

Thanks, go team!
