    Hang on, it'll pass. Maybe try pulling less hard. I don't do double or triple pops every day, still there's no problem with sore finger tips.
     
  3. I do that sometimes. Like the remedy for most things on this page,
    practice and time!

    do you mean- like- popping a chord? or raking upward with 2-3 fingers?

    the only thing ive found to be a little tricky is trying to do double and triple rakes on a string other than the G (or whatever your highest string may be). my fingers just cant easily fit in between the strings- i cant do it quick enough to reliably keep perfect time.

    more practice, perhaps.
     
  5. are you talking a bout "dig" style pops or something else?

    i personally dont have pains from any kinds of pops but maybe you are talking about something else
     
  6. +1 to wondering how to do triple pops (plucks).

    No, this is not raking at all. We mean actual pops 3 times in a row on one string using all three fingers.
