    I have been playing my new five string for a while now and kinda neglecting my four (awww :( ). I havent changed the strings on my fiver yet so I don't know what gauge (sp?) they are. And when I went back to my four I was playing a bit of slap and when I popped my finger felt like someone had took a hammer to it!!! I can slap on my five and it doesn't hurt so do I need to
    (a) get a new set of strings
    (b) get a lighter gauge strings
    (c) take a break for a while to let my figners recover
    (d) stop being such a wussy boy and take it LIKE A MAN!!!!


    p.s. I think this should go here if not feel free to move me

    Just buy a lighter set and see if that satisifies you. If it doesn't, or you don't have the money, then it's d).
