: Hey, you could try to raise the bass up so your left hand doesnt have to curve as much & work as hard to press the strings. You could also try to get a wider strap so the wieght is more dispersed

Well, that is the fastest way to get your arm and shoulder injured. And the weight being dispersed may feel a little better but you're still putting that same am't of weight on the never bundle at the top of your left shoulder which influences your vagus nerve -- the automic nerve system that runs your heart, liver, brain, time, that's dangerous, over 6 lbs., it doesn't matter how it's "dispersed", the weight is still there.
