I just got my first 3/4 bass and even though I am using the correct finger positions according to the book* (and not trying to finger it like my fretless electric), I am still having a lot of hand pain in my left hand.

Any suggestions? How much is too much before I do permanent damage.

* My books are:

Rufus Reid - The Emerging Bassist
Sigi Bush - Jazz Bass Compendium
Mike Richmond - Modern Walking Bass Technique
