Hey everyone, I had an audution last night and found out I have a huge problem, here's the story. About 3 weeks ago I had really bad bout with my back, pinched nerve in between my shoulder blades. I had be in and out of the emergency room 3 times, becuse the spasms in my back and left (fretting) arm were so bad. I had been experiencing some tingling all the way down my left arm as this has been going on. Here's the problem, I hadn't touched my bass in about a month :scowl: and when I picked it up last night I couldn't play. It seems I've lost all the grip strength and flexability in my left (fretting) hand. I got through the audition and it sounded ok, but it was a huge struggle to get it done. At thins point I can't play a major or minor scale properly/cleanly. My 3rd finger and pinky seem to be especially inflexible and week. *** ?! I know the pinched nerve cuased this , as I was fine before. But what do I do to fix it. Despite my ineptitude last night, I may have actually gotten the gig and would need to be ready for my 1st 3-set gig by 12/18. Learning the song isn't the issue here, as I know most of them already. It's about getting the motor control back in my left hand- pronto. Any suggestions or similar experiences ? Please, let me know what you did.
