Ok, guys here's one for you? I actually sat down with the Fender Jazz Geddy Lee sig bass and practiced some leasons. I played for oh about an hour to an hour and a half. That was even taking a few pauses here and there to rest my fingers. When I was done mfinger on my fingering hand were numb and sore. I could not feel the ends of my fingers the rest of the day and night. They were still partially numb most of the next day. Now, here is the part where you come in. When you first started playing bass did your fingers get numb like that, if so how long where they like that, and at what point does it get the point where you finally build your finger strenght, dexterity and tuffness where it doesn't do that?
