The other day i was playing some bass, and i got an idea. Why not take some hand lotion, and start softening my hands??~?? Does anyone else do this??~?? I figure, if i lotion my hands, and they become super soft, and my tone will be a little bit warmer. My girlfriend, who knows nothing about bass, told me "hey, dont you need to have calisus on the end of your fingers". Im not sure how she knows that. But when i thought about it, i thought by putting lotion on my hands and stuff, the calisus will still be there, just soft ones. Anyone else do this??~?? Is it a good idea??~?? not to mention, iv discovered if i wash my hands like...a minute before i play bass, it feals better, or if i lotion my hands before playing, it just..feals good to play. I dont know, anyone do this??~??
