: Does anyone have tips for players with small hands? Name sucessful players with small hands.
I think most of the "small hands" thing is merely psichological. I do have small hands, small at least for a six feet tall guy, but I didn't notice it until I compared my hands with the hands of other guys as tall as I am. This was when I've been playing bass for several years, and before that I never felt any disadvantage compared to other players.
Players with big hands and long fingers may find easier to stretch out for extended fingerings, but that´s it as far as I'm concerned. I don't think big hands are necessary to play bass.
