Small Hands

Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by sickb17, Jul 8, 2005.


  1. After watching Armand Sabal.lecco yesterday and noticing how small my hands are in comparison to his I became a little bit depressed. Are there any famous great bass players with small hands?

    Wow, I guess he does eh? I don't think that having small hands is that big of a disadvantage. Big hands by no means make a good bass player, you still gotta have talent. My hands are not that big, but I can stretch my fingers apart pretty far.

    I think the biggest disadvantage to a player with small hands would be the difficutly of playing a 7,8,9, or 10 string bass. I play a 5 string and it is perfect.
