Hello to all. I am a brand new member to this site, hopefully technique is the right place to post this. I have a mild form of Cerebral palsy, and because of this I have a severe amount of tension in my fretting hand. to compensate for this tension when I started playing around 10 years ago, I started using shortscale basses. question 1:although I realize that A)Talkbass members are not medical professionals, and B) that some might consider shortscale bass a hindrance long term. I find it easier to fret notes as my frethand "piles on" my question is for fatigue/pain related to tension reasons (after 1-2 songs) will it be more beneficial to play a standard 34 scale bass long term due to the length/fact that a longer scale will force stretching albiet much shorter playing time than a 30" scale bass? I am looking for outside opinions on this. question 2: is there any techniques others have found helpful to reduce tension in the fretting hand? if thoughts and opinions could be shared that would mean a lot to me. (if it makes a difference I am a young male in my early 20's who is somewhat diminutive in size at 5'7 130 lbs) Thanks for reading! P.S to the mods if this needs moving to a different thread I apologize. Happy bass playing!
