i havent played my bass in a while, and a few days ago, my friend called me up and said if we wanna start up the band again, we got a gig to do. i said hell yea. So after a few jamming practices, i have a huge blister on my thumb, its really annoying. So i'm asking you experianced bassists, who have probably had many blisters before, should i wait for it to heal (my gig is in 8 days), or pop it and put a bandaid on????
