I play the bass with my index and middle fingers, and also with a pick.
I warm up properly....strech my hands while I'm playing, and my two fingers and thumb
get tired and a bit swollen after each session....I dont play overly hard, but
I dont play with a feathers touch either. I've been playing for about a year now...do those small muscles
in your fingers eventually strengthen? I ice my hand every so often after rehearsals, and
that helps a lot....I just hope I'm not injuring my right hand in any way. My right hand feels completely natural
while I play....Its just frustrating to think I might be damaging my hand in some way
with no knowledge on how to fix it......any help out there? or anybody go throught the same thing
and did it heal or get stronger?
