any tips on how to get calusis on my fingers quicker?
Chew on the tips of 'em.
just keep on practicing.
play, play,play, lots of sixteenth notes with a light touch....
heres the deal i've played in a band for fun for almost 3 years but my friends goes to college 2 hrs away so we dont play as much as we want to, and when i practice alone my fingers don't bother me and they dont make much progress, but when i play w/ the band they get completly tore up
You could go to drastic extremes and lightly sand your fingertips with sandpaper. I believe Stanley Clarke used to do this (I'm not but you asked). One thing I do, because I travel at times and am away from my bass for long intervals is bring a cheap, rough string a rub it along the tips to maintain what I have.
I use a file when I notice my hands are softening up.
Not the cheap ones for nails though, I think its a metal or wood file, but probably metal.
