I was reading the "should you wear your own band shirt on stage" thread when I thought of this. We played an outdoor show a few weeks back. It was 95, humid and the sun was in our faces while we played. After the first song my bass neck was tacky and sliding on my strings was not as smooth as usual. I had a lot of fun but I didn't play very well. We rehearsed a few days later in a hot and humid rehearsal space. The air conditioning could only do so much. Again, my neck was tacky and i felt like I was fumbling around the bass. I had a practice glove in my bag, similar to what Scott from Scott'S Bass lessons wears. I got it when I was practicing so much my finger tips hurt. I have some decent callouses now so I haven't used it in awhile. I threw the glove it on and it was so much better. I think I had one of my best rehearsals ever. I felt like I could move around on the bass easier and with more confidence. So - would you ever play a gig with a glove? Just wondering your thoughts. We have a few more outdoor shows this summer.... I am considering it.
