So, so tired of wrist-pain jokes

Discussion in 'Bass Humor & Gig Stories [BG]' started by c-ba55, Nov 13, 2002.

  1. So last week I played a lot of bass, some of it through a not-loud-enough amp. I mean, a LOT of bass. And so my wrists are sore. Every single man, woman, and child I mention this to makes a wry allusion to onanism. Oh ha, ha, ha. I'm dying here. You're killing me.

    have you tried a parafin dip? They work wonders... yeah yeah... I know... you're a guy... but trust me... they help out a lot... you can buy a kit from walmart for like 50 bucks...(if you don't want to go to a spa :) the kit will last you a long time... it's reasonably cheap for the amount of comfort that it gives... I LOVE mine... :)

    That, and drink LOTS of water...

    I hope you feel better soon.

    Great advice from Sweatpea.

    Also, don't forget to stretch -- before and after you play -- extend your wrists in either direction and do some finger pushups with your hands (not down-on-the-floor pushups -- just push your fingertips together and gently flex your fingers).

    And keep your wrists as straight as possible when you're playing.
