My joints feel...sludgy?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by HG1180, Apr 15, 2020.

  1. After a quick practice session the joints in my right hand feel very slow and sludgy when i try to move them. Does anyone else experience this? Is this a bad sign for an underlying problem? A google search yielded no results.
    Please help!

    Without knowing your age or of any physical issues you may have, do you do any hand exercises before you pick up your bass? I've found that in itself really helps me a lot. Another suggestion is to drink plenty of water to keep yourself hydrated.

  3. Lets just say I’m younger than 25 and i do have some bone and and cartilage disorders. And no i dont have any hand exercises. Ive never had any issues like this before, so i had no reason ro have any exercises, are there any that you reccomend?

    Turn the amp up a bit more and play lighter. You'll have to pay more attention to muting but you'll retain more energy and put your fingers under less stress.

    Exactly. That's why you're all tensed up. A little trip aboard the Marrakesh Express is in order.

    Ask your doc? Without knowing what your medical issues are, we are shooting in the dark.
