    i can't believe it, the skin on my fingers is dead as can be, or so i thought. yesterday i got a blister after practicing some popping, can you believe that?! After nearly two years of playing!!:eek:

    anyone experienced anything like this before?
  2. I believe it. Some days I can play all I like, as hard as I like, and on others my fingers are a bunch of little punks. I never know what to expect.
  3. Popping plays hell with my index finger.

    I've been playing 17 years, but still manage to get blisters from time to time. It's usually when I've had flatwounds on my bass for a while and switch to rounds.
