Anyone else experience on the outside of their elbow?
Yup. I went to see a hand surgeon (I had surgery on my fretting hand years ago)....... anyway I went back to see him because of weakness in my fretting pinky as well as pain in my elbow and my forearm (on top). He told me it sounded like a nerve issue and I am waiting to have a test done to verify.
Its mostly just putting pressure on it
Im glad I'm not alone. I am young too, so I was afraid I might have done something.
That's very odd, the elbows aren't the primary points of wear and tear for a bass player. Do you perhaps play the "Flea way" of holding your right elbow up in the air instead of resting your forearm on the bass?
I do play in a unique way, I have double jointed fingers and a really large reach so I try to use that to my advantage and end up a little like flea I guess you could say.
I get it on my fretting arm side, and I have little girly hands. In my case, it's lateral epicondylitis (Tennis Elbow). If I practice sitting down, and only stand at band practice and gigs, it's a lot better.
I'm also an acupunture student, so a little self needling goes a long way.
Yep, I beleive to have tennis elbow as well.
