When I started on bass I had the same hand soreness that every new player does. I'm a small guy and I soon realized that my small stature was the reason for my difficulty with the instrument. What I want to ask is: Is there any way I can increase my hand size? Preferably natural methods. I've tried pills and pumps and everything but nothing seems to work. I feel like my performance is lacking now and I'm self conscious of my small hands when I'm around other bass players. Please help. I'm willing to try anything.
