I know how to tap and slap. I just want to get that clear so i dont get lectures on how to do it. But after playing constantly for about 2 or 3 minutes, my hands and fingers start to ache. And when i tap i can only do it for about 30 seconds and ive had it. When i slap, my bicep tends to go weak, and when i tap my fingers just ache. How to i build strength? My i let you know that i wont be touching a bass for the next few weeks Lift weights or what?
