I'm (slowly) getting back into playing after recovering from a repetitive stress injury to my fretting hand. Original thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f30/repetitive-strain-injury-questions-advice-1006281/ Now that I'm getting an entirely new set-up for my bass (MUCH LOWER ACTION), I'm looking for some advice as per easy-to-play strings to minimize relapse: I play a 34" scale, 4-string Jazz...exclusively fingerstyle, in an indie/proggish band. I generally prefer roundwound, nickel-plated strings. Does string thickness determine the difficulty of bringing the string to the fretboard? Looking at perhaps the .95-.40 range. Does string "tension" or "stiffness" have anything to do with the difficulty of pressing the string to the fretboard? If it's of any use, I'm running my bass through an Aguilar TH500 and DB210 (x2). Any recommendations anyone can make based on my injury/preferences would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
