it was totally cold yesterday, my hands were freezing, but i played the bass anyways.
I was working on some strokes songs, and they're kind of fast, and i wasnt using a pick. and after 2 hours i stopped and went to my friends house, and when i tried to play the bass there, my fingers were hurting so freaking much, i jusr couldnt play the bass for more than 10 minutes.
And when i woke up today they were still hurting. :/

yeah, it happens now and then. every so often i get serious stinging pain in my fretting fingers. it goes away after a day or so.
I get pains every so often in my right hand as well, probably RSI :(

If you try playing again at about 9:23pm, your fingers will feel fine.

Bass doesn't sound good played with a pick anyway. :P
Anyway, I used to play bass/guitar literally until my fingers started bleeding, but I don't really play either of those enough for that to happen anymore, because I've been focusing on m' piano.

Bass doesn't sound good played with a pick anyway.
it depends entirely on the music, the bassist and EQ settings. plectrums are better for when you want a more powerful sound, as they give more attack.

All right, I'll restate that: I personally almost always prefer the sound of a bass played with fingers.

i hate that :angry: but now its really really hot over here....so i dont have to worry about it for a while :D
sometimes it helps to wash your hands with warm water before you play....well it helps me at least....couldn't hurt to try :D
