I get this on classical guitar for some reason - but not on electric guitar or bass. I suppose grip strengthening devices/excercises would help - but I don't know. Anyone?

: Hi.

: I'm new to bass, and when I play sometimes I discovered that I push my thumb at the back of the neck. Not hard, by when I've been playing for about 40-60 minutes, the palm of my hand starts to hurt. I've been playing guitar for a while and never had this problem. I'm guessing it's becous it's longer between the frets on a bassī. Do anyone have any good tips for training this bad behaviour of mine away?
