Hi, I was hoping some of my more experienced bass brethren could offer some assistance to a TalkBass newbie. I've been playing for two years but I've only gotten real serious about practicing for the past few months (sad isn't it). Sometimes when I practice for a while my left wrist gets really sore and stays sore into the next day. Is this something normal? Will I develop more strength as I play more? I remeber how much my fingertips hurt when I first picked up the guitar, but the callouses eventually came. I'm concerned about carpal tunnel so I try not to squeeze the neck to hard. Any advice?
